Crowded Teeth Summerland Movie Club

Summerland Movie Club opens tomorrow (July 12) and we have time for another sneak preview! Crowded Teeth pays tribute to Wet Hot American Summer in her latest piece:

OK… You guys. This is maybe the dumbest thing I’ve ever drawn? But I’m also incredibly excited about it. . . Also I’ll be there if you want to hug! There is only 1 print made of this beauty – I hope someone loves it and gives it a forever home.

Vanessa Ramirez for Summerland Movie Club

Vanessa Ramirez Summerland Movie Club

I was thrilled when Vanessa Ramirez told me that her piece would pay tribute to Moonrise Kingdom. It’s my second favorite Wes Anderson movie of all time. This ‘flat 3D’ piece captures the film beautifully.

Summerland Movie Club opens this Saturday, July 12 with a reception from 6 – 10pm. We’ll be celebrating the four-year anniversary of Leanna Lin’s Wonderland with movie snacks, bites from Donut Friend, drinks from Eagle Rock Brewery, and some fun exclusives!

Edwin Ushiro ‘Gathering Whispers’ Solo Show at GR2

Gathering Whispers Edwin Ushiro

On July 12, Giant Robot is proud to present Gathering Whispers — a solo exhibition by Edwin Ushiro. We had the pleasure of meeting Edwin at a GR event a few years ago, and he is truly one of the nicest guys ever. The show  opens with a reception on July 12 and will run through July 30.

Edwin Ushiro’s work contains a sense of nostalgia even for a person who didn’t grow up in Maui. The subjects of his works will range from beautiful, warm, and comfortable. One piece will include a not-so-obvious homage to Super Sentai (like Power Rangers). Kids will be jumping out of a pick-up truck as if they’re embarking on a battle against a kaiju. A piece about a bridge built by Okinawan craftspersons encapsulates ideas of change as it has been a subject of demolition to widen a road for more traffic. Another piece features sparklers which scares off bad spirits.

While we travail through our daily activities, Ushiro’s calming nature comes through in his work and you’ll be enchanted by its ethereal look. His pieces have a look that’s all its own. It spans from drawings taken to digital manipulation, and then back to hand painting for finishing. It’s a laborious process that’s all his own.
