That’s right, true believers! Meat Bun is heading to San Diego Comic-Con (July 11 – 15) for the very first time. We’re buddying up with our pals at Giant Robot to bring great video game t-shirts to San Diego. We’ll have out-of-print designs, restocks, maybe even a new thing or two.
Stop by, say hi, grab a sticker and… buy somethin’ will ya!
Where can you find us? At booth #1731, with our friends from Giant Robot. We’re just east of the DC Entertainment and Sideshow Collectibles mega-booths. Here. Look at this map with the arrow pointing at our booth! Or look for the new Paul Robertson-designed banners that will adorn our space.
Dang! Another Game Night at GR2? Already?! Sounds good to me, man.
Here’s the deal. We’ll have James Kochalka and Pixel Jam’s Glorkbot’s Mini-Adventure (a spin-off of the in-progress Glorkian Warrior) headlining, with support from Tri-Tri-Triobelisk and Samurai Gunn. Since this is happening during the Game Over art exhibition at GR2, Yeren and the meow-packed Catburger will also be on hand.
So many games!!!
Game Night 10 happens Saturday, June 16 2012, from 6:30 – 10:00 p.m.

Thanks to everyone who came out to Giant Robot’s “Game Over” art exhibition last weekend. Meat Bun was proud to showcase some of its artwork (which you can probably spot in the photos below) alongside such talented artists. If you missed the show for some valid reason, like being pinned beneath burning wreckage on a Saturday night, there’s still a chance to soak up and/or buy this fine art. Game Over will run at GR2 until June 27.
Purveyors of fine video game art, your attendance is requested at Giant Robot’s all-new “Game Over” art exhibition. The annual-ish art show returns to Giant Robot on June 2, featuring the art of dozens of talented artists, all showing video game inspired work. That includes Meat Bun! We have a unique piece at the show, which you’re more than welcome to purchase.
Opening reception happens Saturday, June 2, with Game Over running through E3 2012 until June 27.
Here’s where the action is!

Also there will be playable indie games including the works of programmers Beau Blythe and Shelby Cinca who are creating a game with Sean Chao and Jeni Yang. It’ll be a welcome back to ArtxGames series.
From right, Phil Fish (gentleman who makes the IGF Seumas McNally Grand Prize award-winning Fez) and Richard Lemarchand (gentleman who makes those wildly popular Uncharted games), perform as PHILLIPPE LEMARCHAND. They’re joined by Baiyon (PixelJunk 4 AM) while repping some Meat Bun at the Venus Patrol party at GDC. It’s easily our favorite photo from the entire week, because we love seeing Meat Bun on people, but the full GDC 2012 photo set from Jeriaska of Nobuwo is spectacular stuff if you love video game music and video game music people.
Meat Bun is thrilled to take part in the upcoming Diversions art show at Giant Robot LA and humbled to be showcasing a selection of our artwork alongside some amazing talent.
Diversions begins this Saturday, March 10 and runs until April 4. The group exhibition features Sean Chao, Feric, Jude Buffum, French, Monyo Monyo and Paul Roberston, whose work you may recognize from our Snack Attack and Big Money, Big Prizes tees (or the web site you’re looking at right now).
The opening reception will happen this Saturday March 10th 2012 from 6:30-10pm. We’ll have some prints of our work on display–and for purchase, of course–that are exclusive to the show.
Some additional details from the release:
Jude Buffum from Philadelphia crosses 8-bit art and social and pop culture commentary. Monyo Monyo from Japan creates wearable masks that are furry and powerful. Feric from Taiwan is known for his delicate and cyber-detailed pieces. Originally from Taiwan but now a resident of Los Angeles, Sean Chao creates astonishing dioramic worlds. French from England evokes metal music and its iconography. Meat Bun, our comrades from multiple pop up shops and Game Night events will display some of their iconic work. In attendance for the opening will be Paul Robertson, Sean Chao and the trio who make Meat Bun.
Diversions will be on view at GR2 which is located at 2062 Sawtelle Blvd LA, CA 90025. Be there!
