Lettus Bee release event!! Andy Jenkins at GR2 - April 21st!!

Andy Jenkins at GR2 April 21 – April 25 Reception: Saturday, April 21, 6:30 pm –10 pm GR2 2062 Sawtelle Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90025 gr2.net / giantrobot.com / (310) 445-9276 Giant Robot is proud to celebrate the release of the Lettus Bee vinyl figure by San Pedro-based artist, illustrator, designer, writer, and independent publisher, as well as art director of Girl Skateboards, Andy Jenkins. Made in conjunction with Ningyoushi and Upper Playground, the piece faithfully brings to three dimensions a character from the Wrench Pilot comic strip that Jenkins and Mel Blend created for TransWorld Skateboarding in the early '90s, and was made in a strictly limited edition of 500. In addition to showing the new piece (which features the iconic skater doing an un-heroic face plant with his board in mid-air) Jenkins will bring out numerous related offerings, including Wrench Pilot giclee or silkscreen prints; original black-and-white ink drawings; selected items from his publishing and printing company, Bend Press; and other surprises. Giant Robot started from a black and white photocopied zine in 1994,evolving into a reputable, internationally distributed quarterly magazine and book publisher. Giant Robot Store opened its doors on Sawtelle Blvd. in West LA in 2001. In 2003, Giant Robot opened GR2, a hybrid store/gallery featuring emerging artists such as David Choe, Kozyndan, and Souther Salazar. Later that year GRSF opened in San Francisco's Upper Haight district, followed by a Giant Robot restaurant, gr/eats, to further the lifestyle experience. In 2005, a fourth store was opened in Los Angeles' popular Silverlake neighborhood, with a fifth installment in New York City's East Village. The opening reception will take place from 6:30 - 10:00 on Saturday, April 21.
