Super cool machines huh?! The beauty of the remade machines and the idea of turning evil into good just couldn’t be passed up. I never gave a bit of thought to where all those cigarette machines went, lucky Clark Whittington did. Terrific idea Clark! I have my submission for the ART-O-MAT almost complete and I should have it shipped off by the weekend if all goes well. Hopefully my little box of goodies will get picked for the project. Check out the Art-o-mat site and see if you have a machine near you!

    Wow – what a neat idea! I love old machines like this – so cool that Clark Whittington thought to do this with them. Hmmm. Makes me wonder what could happen with those little table top juke box machines. LOL. Seriously – very neat! 🙂

    I agree. The whole project is great. Getting original art into people’s hands for 5 bucks is pretty neat in my book.

    Wow, those are so cool. I remember getting in trouble for playing with a cig machine at a restaurant when I was 4 or 5…I just thought the handles were cool!

    I hear ya! That’s why it’ll be fun to get something cool out of one. You get to pull the handle and not get in trouble! YES!
