Interesting the things that come up for Artoo and I to do! This one popped in at the last second from fellow builder Cole Horton. A publisher needed R2 to appear in a stage presentation at the Seattle Convention Center- what a hoot this was!
The picture above was during the presentation with Tom Angleberger who wrote "The Strange Case of Origami Yoda". Now I had never heard of this book, but if your about 10 years old I guess it is a huge best seller.
Tom was a great guy, loved working with Artoo and we had a blast onstage entertaining Librarians from all across the country. He has a new book coming out soon, "Art2-D2's Guide to Folding & Doodling"
All in all we had a lot of fun seeing how Librarians fell for R2, getting our pictures taken and just plain messing about. The Seattle Conventon Center staff & all the people from ALA were just great to work with. We hope to return!
