iam8bit teams up with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios for the third Robot Chicken Art Show which will highlight the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villians in Paradise and feature work by artists at both Robot Chicken and DC Entertainment.
Robot Chicken and iam8bit studios team up for the third consecutive year with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios for the Robot Chicken Art Show, this time highlighting the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise. Artists from Robot Chicken and DC Entertainment (plus special guests) will display their work with all proceeds benefitting OPCC’s Turning Point, an interim housing program that tailors services to the needs of homeless individuals to rebuild their lives and end their homelessness for good.
Robot Chicken uses stop motion animation to bring pop-culture parodies to life in a modern take on the variety/sketch show format. The Emmy Award-winning series began airing in February 2005 and remains among the top-rated original series on Adult Swim. Robot Chicken is created by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, who also serve as executive producers along with their Stoopid Buddy Stoodios partners, John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner. Green and Senreich also write, voice and with Zeb Wells, direct the multiple Annie Award-winning series.
Robot Chicken production manager Laura Allen promises, "I have seen some of the pieces and the amount of work that is going into the art is phenomenal. We have 60+ artists who are submitting art and I know it will be a great event for a great charity. We are all very excited to be a part of this fun event."
The staff of Robot Chicken and DC Entertainment will exhibit their work at iam8bit studios in Echo Park at 2147 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026. The exhibit will be Friday, March 28, 7pm to 11pm. All proceeds from the show will benefit OPCC’s Turning Point. The exhibit will preview and celebrate the upcoming April 6th premiere of the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise.
