Poster Sketch: Space Invaders

One of the best things about the science fiction genre is the diversity of it’s characters. Robots and alien creatures are pure fantasy, and they can become whatever a writer, director or artist wants them to be. They can be terrifying, or hilarious. They can be hideous, or beautiful. They often have many human qualities, but they can also be soulless villains.

This week’s Poster Sketch is a tribute to the many faces of the sci-fi world. These robot and alien inspired beads and accessories are wonderful examples of the endless possibilities of imagination and creativity. To see the live collection, or see more work from these artists, visit the Space Invaders treasury. You can also search for these shops by typing the artist’s name into the Seller Search on

  1. Awesome collection of so many great robot and alien items! Thank you for including my Robot Dog Necklace!

  2. How nifty! Thanks for the featurette!

  3. Loved these robots and found some great Etsy sites to list on my Favorites. I found your blog through "Artful Living on the Bluff". It's really great, I've spent the last hour going back through your archives.
    I'm a beader myself and your profile could be my own. Last night I was up until 5:00am beading. I dream about beads. How sick are we? Ha

  4. Thank you Cenya! I know that non-beaders think we're nuts. We start talking about beads, and our friends get that glazed over look like when TV commercials come on. If they only knew...

  5. Sweet! I love robots even more than pizza and dinosaurs.

  6. Thank you so much to everyone for stopping by to see this collection! What kind of world would it be without sci-fi characters?
