2 Robot Tees in a Tin for Fathers Day


The Chop Shop Store in the Makers Market / Boing Boing Bazaar is selling two of their popular robot tees in a tin box for $40. Ideally it comes with 1 adult sized weRobot tee (men or women) and 1 children???s weRobot sized tee (onesies, toddlers & kids), but really any robot themed tee would work!


Pictured above are some details from the weRobot design. It is worth noting that only the toddler and onesies come in the version seen at top which only features 25 icons of ???friendly??? robots. Kids sizes feature the same art as the grown-up version with nasties included (seen lower left).


If the robot featured on the tin itself seems familiar to you??? it is likely to be because you own a copy of They Might Be Giants first music disc for kids, ???No!??? (seen above, third in the group). The disc art as well as all the interactive videos included on the CD-ROM component were the brain-child of The Chopping Block. A New York based design studio specializing in web design and multimedia since 1996.

Retired They Might Be Giants Website as an Art Print


We are making our design for the official They Might Be Giants website available as a Gicl??e print now at chopshopstore.com. From about 1999 through 2007 the site was a strange shooting gallery that included an accordion, several targeted icons and the heads of presidents Lincoln, Roosevelt, Nixon and Taft. The site was designed by The Chopping Block and was one of the most recognized sites in our portfolio during those early years of dot com boom, scoring several prominent recognitions from organizations such as The One Show, Young Guns, ID Magazine, Communication Arts and Flash Forward. Sadly, the murmuring of the presidents cannot be reproduced in print.

Just for added fun, we are going to generate a random question for each print ordered on the plaque hovering above the accordion. Therefore, no two copies purchased will be the same.

Printed on archival Moab Rag Bright white. Weight is 190 GSM.
