CA – Nightlights Signing

Lorena Alvarez is returning to Gallery Nucleus to sign her latest children’s illustrated book Nightlights. Come get a book signed and stay for a meet-n-greet with the artist. Lorena will be flying in for a visit on Saturday, March 17th from 2:00 – 5:00 PM.

About the artist:
Lorena is an illustrator for children’s books, independent publications, advertising and fashion magazines. Based in South America, Lorena has been showing her works in solo and group exhibitions with Nucleus for a couple of years: The Kingdom and Fantastical Flora & Fauna.

About the book:
Every night, tiny stars appear out of the darkness in little Sandy’s bedroom. She catches them and creates wonderful creatures to play with until she falls asleep, and in the morning brings them back to life in the whimsical drawings that cover her room.

One day, Morpie, a mysterious pale girl, appears at school. And she knows all about Sandy’s drawings… Nightlights is a beautiful story about fear, insecurity, and creativity, from the enchanting imagination of Lorena Alvarez.

CA – Hug It Out Signing

Animation/illustration artist Louis Thomas appears at Gallery Nucleus on Saturday, February 18th at 6:00 PM. Louis will be signing his latest book Hug It Out, and talk to fans.

About the book:
Mom has had enough of Woody and Annie’s incessant fighting. When her pleas for sharing and apologizing are ignored, she demands they “hug it out.” At first, the warring siblings are confused. Hugging? But after a long afternoon of forced embraces, the brother and sister decide to call a truce to avoid yet another icky hug. However it doesn’t take long for them to miss that newfound closeness. And soon they’re looking for something to fight about so they can hug it out once more!

Adults will delight in a new solution to conflict, while kids will enjoy yelling “HUG IT OUT!” at each familiar situation. With subversive humor and smart, eye-catching illustrations, Louis Thomas’s debut is a cheeky tribute to sibling rivalry and (cuddly) compromise.

About the artist:
Louis Thomas is based in Paris, France. He graduated from CalArts and Gobelins then worked full-time in California for several animation studios such as Pixar and Cartoon Network. He then returned to France and started showing work in galleries and illustrating children’s books.

Computers don’t make movies. People do: the artists, editors, animators, and technical directors. People are the life behind everything that gets created at Pixar. While animated films are technically complex to make, they each begin with the simplicity of putting pencil to paper.Many people don’t realize that Pixar has almost as many artists working in traditional media-hand drawing, painting, pastels, sculpture-as they do in digital media. Most of their work takes place during the development of a project, when they are working out the story and the look of the film. The wealth of beautiful art created for each movie is rarely seen outside the studio, and the finished film sent around the world would never be possible without it.Pixar believes that a film is a contract between the filmmaker and the audience. The filmmaker offers an imagined world; the public interprets the creation. With just the right amount of realism, a film becomes perfectly believable. This belief hinges on the consistent application of the rules of the filmic world. These rules are explored and defined through concept art formats, including character studies, background paintings and color scripts just to name a few. The result is a world both new and recognizable; fictitious yet intuitively real.The Pixar Art Collection is the first time a coordinated assortment of Pixar concept art has been released, celebrating each milestone film release in Pixar’s history. The pieces were hand-picked by a select team at Pixar and represent a wide range of media, from marker to pastels to digital creation.

The Collection is a love letter to Pixar and to Pixar’s fans – to each of us who found adventure, soared through space, changed our fate and renounced capes forever. To infinity and beyond!
