Giant Robot is proud to present For The Love Of…, a group art show featuring artists that we love, doing what they love. Contributors represent a variety of media, including painting, illustration, and indie comics, and include the following:

- Robert Bellm paints vibrant images from nature, calling the eye-pleasing mix of natural shapes with manmade forms “organic technology.”
- Christopher Bettig develops products, graphics, and installations for a wide range of clientele from his studio, The Mountain Label.
- Matt Furie is a San Francisco-based artist whose richly detailed illustrations reflect the unholy crossbreeding of The Neverending Story and The Muppet Show.
- Tim Gough is a Philadelphia artist whose imagery goes for a direct approach that addresses the human condition and the situations surrounding it.
- Benjamin King is a young, upstart artist from the Bay Area whose illustrations reflect a unique perspective on mainstream celebrity and underground culture, among other topics.
- Jesse LeDoux is an accomplished commercial illustrator who handles creative collaborations with high-profile clients through his site, LeDouxville.
- Aaron Martinez is a Los Angeles based artist, who creates somber yet thoughtful monochromatic images, and is currently designing for Element Skateboards.
- Sidney Pink is a Japan-based illustrator who was nominated for the 2008 GEISAI Museum 2 Jury Awards.
- Albert Reyes is a prolific artist from Los Angeles whose style reflects the grittiness of the streets fused with the refinement of classical portraiture.
- Daria Tessler is a New York-based illustrator/printmaker whose delicate, intricate, detailed works give a sense of story ripped straight from your imagination.
- Joe To is a San Francisco-based artist whose unique illustrations portray the irregular as normal, the normal as strange, the strange as safe.
- Aiyana Udesen creates exquisitely detailed works that blend nature with celebrity, and publishes “How to Draw” books that marry the subjects seamlessly.

A reception featuring many of the artists will be held from 6:30-10:00 on Saturday, February 21st. For more information about the show, GRSF, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
