Giant Robot: Game Over 4


Giant Robot is proud to present Game Over IV, a group show that pays homage to the continuous evolution of videogames and their massive influence on popular culture. The impact and inspiration of videogames will be represented through a wide assortment of styles and genres provided by top artists in the fields of illustration, painting, sewing, indie comics, and videogames.

If you're in San Francisco for the opening, please check it out!
I put together a poster inspired by the original Russian folk tale that goes to the Korobeiniki song that plays during Tetris. If you know anything of Russian stories then I needn't tell you the nature of the tale's outcome. (I wouldn't say it would beat out Anna Karenina in a showdown exactly but it's not going to leave you with warm and fuzzy feelings.) But let's try to stay positive! After it's debut at Game Over 4, it will be available for purchase along side two other new prints at the Attract Mode store!

This is really nice! Really takes me back to the good old days of tangled up wires and head to head Tetris on the Gameboy. I'll be there for the opening, will you?

Thanks!
Unfortunately, I'll be in NY for the opening and will be missing out on the festivities. I may have to put in a request that you have enough fun for the both of us when you go.
