Last Saturday was the 10th annual Post-It show at Giant Robot’s GR2. With over 300 artists on the bill, the much anticipated yearly event had buzz going for weeks as several legendary artists revealed previews of their tiny Post-It works of art. Sadly, we got there a little late but nonetheless there was still a hefty line and plenty of crazy Post-Its to check out. 10 Years in and there is still no shortage of amazing art being done on Post It Notes at one of Giant Robot’s signature events. L.A. Taco’s Desilu stopped by to capture some of the night. Follow the link for a gallery of images.

TRECE – OPENING RECEPTION (Dec 12th, 2014 – 7pm to 1am @ PLAZA DE LA RAZA)

Smogtown is proud to present the final show of the “TRECE” series. The culmination of years of hard work will be showcased @ Plaza De La Raza on Friday, Dec 12th from 7pm to 1am. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend. Hand painted skate decks will be showcased at the Boathouse Gallery overlooking the lake at Lincoln Park. Each artist created 13 decks that will be available for purchase from Smogtown. All works will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Ricardo Estrada, EVOL, Gajin Fujita, RETNA and SATTER UGLY will have their hand painted decks displayed in the gallery. All of the previous artists who have been a part of the “TRECE” series will also have their work proudly featured as well. Decks by Chaz Bojorquez, DEFER, PRIME, BIG SLEEPS, Miguel Felipe, Martin Doherty, GERMS and Rafa Cardenas will be available for sale.

The “TRECE” series has been a groundbreaking effort by Smogtown & all of the artists involved. Making original artwork both accessible and affordable has always been one of the primary goals. The evolution of this effort has come to fruition due to all parties involved, with the artists manifesting the concept in way that have continued to push things further in the artistic community & art world in general.

Plaza De La Raza has always supported the arts & the community. Besides the long & storied history behind it, the current endeavors show that the continued mission is being accomplished. The venue and the show could not be a more perfect mix. The last show had a reception that was amazing & this year should be even bigger & better. We look forward to you all joining us as yet another pivotal event in not only Los Angeles, but the amazing artistic revolution occurring worldwide.

The first ever Comic Arts LA was held last Saturday at Think Tank Gallery. The one day only fest was aimed at promoting the appreciation of independent artists who make their own graphic novels, comics, books of photography or illustrations and many other mediums that help give Los Angeles a distinct art community.

CALA was organized by Jen Wang, Angie Wang, Iris Jong, and Jake Mumm, and were helped out by tons of volunteers who helped visitors navigate the packed event. Exhibitors included Beatrice The Biologist, Edie Fake, David Wolter, Sam King, Farel Dalrymple, Katherine Wirick, and Mark Todd. The event was a huge success, as hundreds of people flocked to Think Tank, and bought lots of books. What made the event even better was the fact that the exhibitors were willing to trade, and do drawings and signings in their books when requested. We’re definitely looking forward to CALA’s next event. L.A. Taco’s Desilu was there to capture the event. Keep reading for a full gallery of photos…
