Dan Jones ( Tinkerbots )
A self proclaimed "junkaholic" and all around geek enthusiast, Dan Jones (a.k.a. Tinkerbots) is one of San Diego's premier found object and assemblage sculptors. A native San Diegan, Dan has been a tinkerer for as long as he can remember..
From his backyard lab and studio, Dan takes great joy in creating whimsical robots, ray guns and steampunk themed sculptures out of what most people would consider "junk". Some of Dan's many interests include collecting vintage radio broadcasts, exploring the Steampunk and Dieselpunk aesthetic and going on treasure hunts for those esoteric gems of mehanical castoffs (a.k.a. junk)! Dan's work has appeared in several publications including cover images and has been displayed at San Diego's Device Gallery, Oceanside Museum of Art, the San Diego Automotive Museum and San Diego Comic Con's Art Show.

"Tinkerbots makes the most amazing robots and rayguns ever. Actually anything Dan makes is fantastic, and definitely one of a kind. He takes stuff that most of us would toss, or walk right by, and he works his Tinkerbots magic! Even better, Dan is one of the nicest artists you will ever have the pleasure to buy from. Take a look at his work - such robot and raygun eye candy is not to be missed!"

"Dan's creations, whichever form they happen to take, are always ready to surprise and amaze! I'm happy to say that i have two of his bots residing in my workroom, and they've boosted the creative quotient considerably!
I don't know how he thinks up and builds all of this stuff, but I guess that's part of the magic! : ) As he likes to say: "Fun stuff!"

"Dan Jones' Tinkerbots creations are the most fabulous use of what most people would call "junk". Dan creates beautiful ray guns out of found objects that could spark anyone's imagination. His bots are beautiful and some of the best characters I've ever encountered. You will most definitely be happy with any piece you purchase or commission from Dan!"
