Nucleus: Spongebob fan submissions →

If nautical nonsense be something you wish, then it would be a big mistake to miss our tribute to SpongeBob SquarePants! Nucleus has teamed up with Nickelodeon to present a collection of tribute artwork from a wide variety of select artists as well as production work from the show itself - but this exhibition is not finished yet! We are still fishing for some fin-tastic submissions created by SpongeBob’s own fans! Artists and fans who submit their SpongeBob tribute to us by August 24th will have a chance to have their work exhibited at Universal Studios Hollywood at the SpongeBob Fan Shellabration on September 7th & 8th! 

Fellow 626 artists and fans of SpongeBob!  Get in on this!

Star Wars Tribute - Gallery Nucleus - May the 4th be with you →

jessthevagabond:

Sylvia!!!!!! we must go to this!!!

The Force is strong with Nucleus as we present one of our biggest tribute exhibitions yet in honor of one of the largest franchises in entertainment history. Star Wars first took the world by storm in 1977 with its modern special effects and spellbinding costumes and set designs. More than 3 decades later, the saga remains close to the hearts of Star Wars lovers, while captivating an entirely new generation of fans. 

Nucleus has invited a diverse group of talent to celebrate their favorite Star Wars moments and characters. Join us as our gallery is transformed into a galaxy far, far away with a collection of over 100 original works inspired by the saga.

Yeah, I’m posting this because I’m in this - if you’re in the l.a. area you should stop by! 

Cal State LA is not in the 626, technically, but it’s right next to Alhambra, like on the edge, so it might as well be!  So please come to this show if you can!

"Ukiyo-e Heroes" at Gallery Nucleus

Last night, I stopped by Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra (definitely the SGV’s no.1 place for all things Pop Art) where this month’s opening featured Jed Henry, an artist who’s current project’s success is made of the things internet dreams are made of.  The story behind “Ukiyo-e Heroes” started with some designs the artist made to share with his friends on facebook and tumblr, where it later went viral and eventually led to him collaborating with a master Japanese woodblock artist and a kickstarter campaign that managed to earn much more over it’s goal of $10,400 (an astounding $313,341, with 2,422 backers).    

So, what is “Ukiyo-e Heroes”?  Chances are, if you’re a gamer, you’ve probably heard of it, but if not, basically it’s a parody of famous video game characters illustrated in the style of historical Japanese woodblock art.  Henry transforms familiar heroes of the popular Nintendo and Capcom universes into mythical Japanese warriors battling yokai.    Games like “Mario Kart” turn into a dynamic scene of  rickshaw racing where Mario trades in his signature overalls for a more traditional Japanese robe, Link and Samus Aran are clothed in Samurai-like armour, and cute and cuddly Kirby becomes a ferocious soul eater!

"Soul Eater" Giclee print.

 And that’s where the main appeal and charm of this collection of work comes through: the details.  So, Henry decided to get even more detailed and more historical by enlisting the help of master woodblock artist David Bull (apparently, there are only a few real masters left, as Japanese woodblock printing is a dying art form).  *more pictures and info after the jump..
