“The whole process of painting to me is a push and pull between building up detail and then destroying what isn’t necessary to the story or composition of the painting.” >>

I Wanna Be The Guy Gaiden by Michael “Kayin” O’Reilly: The sequel to the most difficult game sensation I Wanna Be The Guy. A platformer that takes sprites from games of your childhood memories – and you may not have seen this one coming – kills you with them.

 

Walker by Blake Fix: An impressively large platformer with beautiful sprite art, a whimsical sense of humour and a single-button control system. Playing as the titular Walker, you embark on a grand quest to… walk somewhere, in a mostly forwards/rightwards direction! And jump on stuff! Facebook event. >>

A new set of drink coasters by Le Merde. Only 50 of each variety are made. Hand printed.
Misty Fog Pyramid is perfect to keep your can of brew frosty cold!
The T-shirt reflects Le Merde’s work from the current exhibition.
Le Merde button featuring his Hollis character.
A classic figure now signed by Le Merde himself.
Le Merde has released prints to coincide with the show Misty Fog’s Combat Rock with Kiyoka Ikeda.

In Japan, a 20th Birthday is a “Coming of Age” birthday. It includes ceremonies and parties, and it’s akin to becoming 21 in the US. We’ll be celebrating Mari Inukai’s Daughter, Sena’s birthday on October 27th at Giant Robot 2 in West LA.
The Exhibition will feature: Mari Inukai, Sena Inukai, Amy Sol, Audrey Kawasaki, Edwin Ushiro, Elizabeth Ito, Fumi Omori, Katsuya Terada, Kent Williams, Sean Chao, Stella Im Hultberg, Tessar Lo, and Yoskay Yamamoto. >>

Giant Robot Biennale 3 at JANM (a.k.a. My GR family reunion)

To most, Giant Robot Biennale 3 at JANM is simply the biggest, best group show that an indie artist can be associated with. It isn’t very often that pop-rooted, independent fine artists (Asian or not) are given a top-shelf venue to gather and shine. Eric does a rad job of cultivating this scene, and has built up a real family of artists in the process. I am really proud to have worked with him on the magazine that has showcased so many of them.

So as the end of publication nears its two year mark, attending the opening felt a lot like a family reunion to me. I hardly get out to Sawtelle these days, and see Eric and the artists pretty rarely. So while it was especially cool to see the amazing art on the first day (such as the sculpture by Ako Castuera, above) it was just as rad to see so many people that I have grown close to (like the Big Boss Robot and his family, below).

Okay, it’s not like I knew everyone there. After I answered the person who checked me in that I was with four guests instead of one, she looked annoyed and asked, “Are you an artist?” No, but I quickly took the stickers for my wife Wendy (who designed GR mags 18-68), daughter Eloise, niece Lucia, and cousin visiting from New Zealand and moved on.

Right after the opening remarks by Eric and JANM representatives, Wendy and I saw our friends Susie Ghahremani and Michael Esten. They drove up from San Diego in time for the Chickfactor concert and stuck around to see Susie’s customs in the opening! (more…)

LA Weekly: GR Biennale 3 at JANM

Article about the Giant Robot Biennale 3 by Liz Ohanesian. Thank you much.

Luke Chueh: “”I really believe that Giant Robot helped promote that the fact that there is more to this scene than the Japanese Superflat artists,” says Chueh, referencing artist Murakami and like-minded artists in Japan.” (LA Weekly – Biennale 3)
