I really enjoy Bristlebots! On my third box of 10, I decided to start painting with them.

I call these Cavebot Paintings because they are the 1st robot art. I can not help but reference the earliest human art: the aboriginal hand print; followed by the caves of Lascaux.

Before I began painting with the Bristlebots, I referred to them as Spiritech - or a little 'Jimmy the Cricket'. Now; they are no longer what is represented on the walls, they are painting the scenes.

The Cavebots are painting what they have discovered beyond the veil of dreams. The images are experienced by UV LED torchlight. Never before seen colors in the history of mammalian eyesight.
