If you’re attending San Diego Comic-Con this year, be sure to look for Manny the Sloth at Giant Robot booth 1729. This year Manny is cosplaying as Chewbacca, so he’s a Chewloth! Manny the ChewLoth is a Flat Bonnie x Giant Robot exclusive for Comic Con. Each 10″ handmade plush is signed, numbered, and includes a special Giant Robot/Comic-Con sewn-in tag and hangtag.
Manny comes with an adoption certificate, button, and sticker. Made from faux fur, vinyl pleather and safety eyes.
Flat Bonnie helps raise awareness of abandoned animals, and the importance of adopting when you are ready for a new friend. A generous portion of sales is donated to bunny/animal rescue organizations monthly. Flat Bonnie plushes are made with 100% animal friendly products.
Nikki McClure has a new solo show at GR2 and it looks amazing!! “15,000 Years Later” opened on April 4 and will be on view through April 22. You can also check out the show online.
Nikki McClure’s work echo her own cycles in life. From pre-children, to a baby, to a kid growing up, McClure captures it with paper cut pieces using an X-acto knife that are delicate and beautiful. Some pieces echo a working person’s world, others echo motherhood, and many celebrate the outdoors.
McClure has numerous published books, prints, and cards. Her annual calendar remains popular as ever. McClure once performed music and occasionally still does. She’s worked with numerous musicians and brands including Patagonia and lives in Olympia, Washington.
Giant Robot has supported her work from an early time, and it’s appeared at GR2 and in the Japanese American National Museum.
On Saturday, December 6, Giant Robot, Mark Todd, and Esther Pearl Watson are proud to present Post-It Show Ten at GR2. All pieces are $25. Sales begin at 4pm on December 6. GR2 will not presell nor hold any pieces; you have to be there to purchase.
Every year I try to buy one of Susie Ghahremani‘s Post-Its. All of these pieces are fantastic!
If you’re able to attend the opening, be sure to look for one of Jared Andrew Schorr‘s pieces. His cut paper pieces are always spectacular.
