CA – Molly and the Bear Signing

00000000-mollyandthebear

Join Gallery Nucleus on Saturday May 28th, 2016 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm with Disney Animation artist Bob Scott for his signing of his published popular comic book strip Molly and the Bear. If you always wanted to introduce your little ones to comics, now is the chance!

FREE Admission
Books will be available for purchase at the signing

About the book:
It can be tough on a family when someone new has moved in, especially if it’s a 900-pound scaredy-bear so terrified of wilderness life that he’s fled to the burbs. Fortunately Bear was found by Molly, a fearlessly optimistic 11-year-old can-doer who has taken him firmly in hand, devoted to seeing her hirsute BFF cope with modern life. Molly’s Mom is happy with the new sibling — Bear’s an excellent conversationalist and loves her homemade cookies. But Dad is having a harder time, his role as center of the universe now shared with an ursine behemoth who, unfortunately, adores him.

About the Artist:
Bob Scott lives in both the world of comic strips and animation. Born in Detroit, he taught himself cartooning, emulating the masters in the funny pages. Acceptance and graduation from California Institute of the Arts opened the world of character animation for Bob. He has worked over 30 years in the industry as an animator, character designer, storyboard artist and voice talent. His credits can be found on projects from Marvel’s Muppet Babies, Turner Animation’s Cats Don’t Dance and Pixar’s The Incredibles. He has worked for Jim Davis, co-penciling U.S. Acres and co-directing Garfield: His 9 Lives. His heart has always wanted a comic strip of his own, and so Molly and the Bear was born in 1997 and became a syndicated webcomic in 2010. Scott lives in Burbank, CA.

CA – Are We There Yet? Signing

00000000_Dan Santat Gallery Nucleus

Author & Illustrator Dan Santat appears at Gallery  Nucleus to sign his latest children’s book Are We There Yet? on Saturday May 7th, 2016 from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm.

Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride–and after reading this astonishingly inventive new book (that even turns upside down for several pages!), you’ll never look at being bored the same way again.

Let’s face it: everyone knows that car rides can be boring. And when things get boring, time slows down. In this book, a boy feels time slowing down so much that it starts going backward–into the time of pirates! Of princesses! Of dinosaurs! The boy was just trying to get to his grandmother’s birthday party, but instead he’s traveling through Ancient Egypt and rubbing shoulders with Ben Franklin. When time flies, who knows where–or when–he’ll end up.

About the Artist
Dan Santat is the Caldecott Medal-winning and New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend, as well as the illustrator of many other picture books, including Crankenstein by Samantha Berger. Dan lives in Southern California with his wife, two kids, and various pets.
