Dark Horse have announced that they will be publishing a follow-up to the 2008 art book Robots and Donuts, in which Eric Joyner paired vintage toys and pastries to create fascinating and strange paintings, with Joyner’s new work, Robotic Existentialism: The Art of Eric Joyner.
Joyner’s work has appeared on the popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory, on the cover of Ben Folds Five’s album The Sound of the Life of the Mind, and has been featured at the Corey Helford Gallery for his most recent solo show, “Sweet Dominion,” in 2016.
Robotic Existentialism: The Art of Eric Joyner features the San Francisco-based artist’s newest pieces, including The Horseshoe Bend, Daybreak, Movers and Shakers, and more. Joyner’s artistic style has been described as “subtly nostalgic yet imaginatively unique”.
Dark Horse say: “Robotic Existentialism: The Art of Eric Joyner is a beautiful collection that entices the reader to stop, ponder the meaning of life, and perhaps savor a donut or two”.
