Giant Robot x Thrash Lab – David Horvath The Uglydoll Man

One of our closest friends, David Horvath explains how Uglydoll wasn’t just born out of a plush doll, but it’s a process of drawings that aren’t just doodles like what most people would think. Uglydoll is actually born out of stories from own daily lives. The things that happen become situations between characters. It’s much deeper than you’d ever think. I’m proud to have directed David Horvath.

Thanks again to Ashton Kutcher and his Thrash Lab.

Uglydoll on CNBC Friday 8pm Eastern – How I Made My Millions


“Stitched Together” – UGLYDOLL
David Horvath signed letters to his sweetheart far away in Korea with a character named “Wage”. Sun-Min surprised him by making a doll version as a holiday present. Soon after, a toy store owner in Los Angeles ordered 20 –which sold out in a day- and the love birds launched what became a wildly successful line of Ugly Dolls, books, products and even a movie soon at a theater near you.

How I Made My Millions premieres Friday 8pm ET on CNBC.

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…)

GR2 – Uglydoll Wage Birthday Party Event Photos

A great event, thanks to the staff and David Horvath for helping make this all happen. WAGE! was played. If you didn’t make it, you missed out on great prizes. The chances of winning were high! Some even won twice. Behind the scenes, was a lot of preparation to make an event come off simple. We’re glad to do it every time.
