botodesigns by JET Alum designer Chen Reichert


One of the pleasant surprises that came out of yesterday’s JET Alumni Author Showcase was learning about Philly-based JET alum Chen Reichert, creater of botodesigns.  In her Etsy site’s own words:

Welcome to the world of Boto created by Chen Reichert! Meet Boto, a robot in Japan. During his travels, Boto has met other robot travelers and a plant who is far away from home. Get to know Boto and his friends!

Botodesigns is my little world of Japanese inspired characters. I lived in Japan for a year and spent most of my time traveling, collecting postcards and enjoying the culture and characters that I encountered on a daily basis. Somewhere along the line my experience planted the seed of the idea of a robot tourist. It gestated for a few months until Boto was born and soon after came his motley gang of friends and family along with a plant that is far away from home. In my shop you’ll find my characters depicted in all different media including original paintings, silkscreened T-shirts, prints, handmade dolls, magnets and more! Please visit my blog:
