Event: L.A. Pokémon art show and game tournament, Sat., Jan. 3, 2015

Who Is Sugimori

This Nintendo Pokémon-themed art show and game tournament sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday in Los Angeles.

"Who is Ken Sugimori?" is an installation consisting of nearly 800 drawings of every Pokemon and mega-evolution in the Nintendo canon. It's taken artist Johnnie JungleGuts over a year to complete these drawings and they represent a culmination of his work within the Pokemon fandom. This opening at Human Resources also includes a video screening curated by Johnnie which features videos from many different fandoms and artists. And of course, there's also going to be a Pokemon tournament, and perler creations by the Pikashop!

Saturday, January 3, 2015, from 3:30pm to 10:00pm at Human Resources, 410 Cottage Home St, Los Angeles, California 90012. [Facebook, via Liz Ohanesian]
