Our friends, Ben Jones (Paper Rad) and the Problem Solverz team (John Pham, Jon Vermilyea, and Martin Cendreda) will be opening an exhibition November 19th at Giant Robot 2, West Los Angeles. You may have seen our studio visit at Cartoon Network HQ with these guys. We got an exclusive tour of their studio, a behind the scenes and glimpse into putting this innovative show on the air. This is one of the most visually arresting cartoons on Cartoon Network right now. The stories and characters are awesome and it’s the team of indie comicbook artists behind this program that is most significant to me. The show is different, the art is current… when you watch it, you’ll understand what I’m talking about.
Giant Robot has teamed up with the crew for an exhibition titled, “Art of Problem Solving”. If you’ve seen the show, you understand why it’s worthy of an exhibition. It’s art on national television. And if you know the history of Ben Jones and Paper rad, you see his influence all over this… it’s Ben Jones, 100%.
Below are some images of a super limited zine that our friend, John Vermilyea (lead artist of the Problem Solverz) gave me. These are more like sketches and ideas in this zine, I’m sure you’ll be seeing concept art at the show as well, but, probably tons of finished, vibrant, tripped out pieces. Info on the show below.
Here is Jon Vermilyea… thanks for the zine Jon!
and, the show info…
