WOW! I guess it's been 2 and a half years since i've fired up the ol' blog spot. Jeez.
I saw this wonderfully inspired, heart warming, unique, and bitter sweet movie called Okja. It's on Netflix. You should watch it. The CG is fantastic, and like a twitter friend of mine said, "I've never fallen in love with a CG character so quick on screen before". It's true. Okja is incredible.

The official Gallery opening took place at Gallery Nucleus on June 21st, and was a HUGE success.
When the online auction for the original pieces begins/ends, all proceeds will be donated to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. A pretty incredible event put together by the fabulous people at DreamWorks and lead by Head of Story on the feature film, Tron Mai. I will keep updating with more info of where/when the show will be traveling to next, along with info about the online auction which will begin at the same time the feature film is released on DVD.
Thanks for visiting!!
