Theo Ellsworth – Laughing Ghost Nation

July 27 – August 14, 2013

Reception: Saturday, July 27, 6:30-10 PM

Giant Robot is proud to present Laughing Ghost Nation, an art show featuring new works by Theo Ellsworth.

Theo Ellsworth is promising that this is going to be his biggest show ever. That’s a huge promise and we’re ready for him. He now lives in Montana, has an expanded studio and will be in attendance.

From Wikipedia: “Ellsworth has published two books, including Capacity and Sleeper Car. A story from Sleeper Car was chosen for The Best American Comics 2010.[1] His work has been described as “a cross between cartooning and art, poetry and the nonsensical ramblings of a writer emerging from a dream.”

GR Screening: Johnnie To’s Drug War

Saturday, August 3

Sundance Sunset Cinema, Los Angeles

Master Director Johnnie To’s DRUG WAR Opens August 2nd in LA at Sundance Sunset Cinema! Special event on Saturday night (8/3) hosted by Giant Robot, with prizes from Well Go USA

Long considered the master of the Hong Kong crime thriller, Johnnie To’s first mainland production eschews “two guns at once” mayhem in favor of atmosphere and a tightly-wound plot punctuated with impeccably choreographed bursts of violence, making DRUG WAR an intricate puzzle box of a film that ignited a firestorm of controversy in its homeland.

Interview with Robert Williams at Comic-Con about the Mr. Bitchin’ documentary

By MARTIN WONG

Robert Williams is a champion of lowbrow art who has barged past the velvet rope of fine art with wonderfully complex, completely thought out, and masterfully executed oil depictions of Western Civilization gone horribly wrong.

By MARTIN WONG
