About the Brand
Robo Roku is a lifestyle brand of cute and quirky characters that adorn apparel, accessories, and decor to make your life a little more fun!
The robotic design duo of Robo Roku create a dream world of color & fun. Originally named Robot Conspiracy, we decided to focus on our main robots, Robo and Roku (pronounced roh-boh and roh-coo). These robots aren’t like normal robots, they dream! Rokuland is the universe that they’ve dreamed up, so they can have other friends to hang out with besides robots. They play in a band and design tees to make a living. Meet their friends & explore their whimsical world!
About the Artists
Since 2003, Renée and Josh (the design team behind Robo Roku) have been collaborating on characters for comic books, apparel, and accessories. It was out of these collaborations that Robo Roku was officially established in 2006.
Conspiring in crimes of cuteness, Renée Rice and Josh DuBose enjoy creating characters that bring a smile to your face. This dynamic duo create their designs with Microns, fine liners, and pencils on paper, finishing them up in Adobe Illustrator to achieve a bright balance of color and life in each illustration. They pull inspiration for their playful banter and puntastic art from their love of robots and the variety of pop and Japanese culture they grew up on, such as 80s Care Bears, Sanrio, Morning Glory, Ren & Stimpy, Gary Larson, and Jim Henson. Josh and Renée blend their influences with their sunny lifestyle to bring heart and humor to every facet of their work.
