“Marilla Blue and Orange: Exhibition of Art by Mari Inukai” at GR2

Come by to GR2 Giant Robot this Saturday to see their latest exhibit, Marilla Blue and Orange: Exhibition of Art by Mari Inukai. The show will feature original oil paintings and pencil drawings by Inukai.

The Marilla Blue and Orange exhibition melds two worlds of Mari Inukai. Her expressionistic portraiture, is now blurring and stepping into her other world, the imaginary. Her fictional characters, a team of illustrative creatures, which are part of her canon, appear as headdresses for her portraiture subjects. Facial expressions continue to appear pensive, yet inviting us to wonder. Inukai’s pencil drawings continue in the same direction.

Opening reception will be on October 25, 2014, from 6:30PM to 10PM. Inukai herself will be at attendance at the show as well to meet fans.

NYCC 2014 Recap: ENFU

One of the things we love about New York Comic Con is coming across new artists and products we never heard of. When we first saw the ENFU booth in The Block, the first thing that cause our attention was the vibrant colors coming from their table. We had to check out what this booth was about and had a chance to meet the man behind the name, Ken Taya.

The main item of the booth was the book ENFU: Cute Grit. The book is a collection of ENFU’s work over the past decade. Fun fact-Taya has also worked as an artist on video games including Halo 3 and Scibblenauts Unmasked. You can order ENFU: Cute Grit on Amazon now for $35 USD each. Get your copy here and see all of ENFU’s works on their website.
