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. His work has been described as “a cross between cartooning and art, poetry and the nonsensical ramblings of a writer emerging from a dream.”
