Eggs are a symbol of rebirth, of Easter, and in this case, the focus of a fundraising project from the time of the Japanese tsunami. Sponsored by the British Red Cross, and coordinated by the U.K. ad agency TBWA, the project collaborated with a group of illustrators to raise money and draw attention to Japanese reconstruction with these tattooed wooden eggs. They were printed on Egg-bot, an open-source art robot that can draw on spherical objects.
Watch the Egg Bot at work on this Vimeo explanation. And yes, there’s an Egg Bot pool on Flickr.

where can i buy these?
Hi – They were part of a British Red Cross fundraising program at the time of the tsunami, so the links to the for-sale pages are gone now. You could email TWBA London, the ad agency that coordinated the program. Their website is http://www.tbwa-london.com/
Hope that helps.
Well, that was an interesting video. I went to the link they gave, but it got confusing over there. Off to check out the flickr link. Thanks for the post!
