Gallery Nucleus has once again teamed with Dreamworks Animation for an art show celebrating the company’s How To Train Your Dragon film series. The How To Train Your Dragon art was created as a tribute to the movies by artists on the film’s creative team, curated specifically for this art exhibit. While the show does have some beautiful original works of art, those are a bit pricey — so I wanted to showcase some of the more affordable limited edition prints they have released (available to purchase online). The piece above is my favorite from the series, TOOTHLESS ON TOP by Ryan Savas. Hit the jump to check out my favorite pieces from the How To Train Your Dragon art show.

Two popular and collectible trends intersect this week at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. They are Lego and limited edition art.
The exhibit is called “LEGO Memories (Or a Man-Child’s Recollection of the 80′s Through Lego)” and is the first solo show of artist Dan Shearn. It opens June 20 and remains on display through June 29. Shearn drew dozens of his favorite characters from movies, TV and music of the Eighties as Lego Minifigures. Then those drawings are printed as over 60 different limited edition prints, some of which are a single character, others are multiple characters, some are very well-known, others are super inside and specific.
It’s a pretty fun idea and, below, you can check out a small sample of the work. Read More »
The stroke of midnight is pretty important in Disney stories. It’ll soon be pretty important to Disney fans, too. Acme Archives will release twelve new posters beginning Friday June 20, and keep them on sale until the stroke of midnight the second following Monday. The posters run the gamut of Disney properties, from Frozen to Lilo and Stitch, The Muppets, Alice in Wonderland, Malificent and others. It’s a pretty impressive spread of Disney work, highlighted by Mark Englert‘s awesome Little Mermaid piece. Check out all the posters, and get all the info, below. Read More »
When collectors think of limited edition screenprints, they think of Austin. They think of Los Angeles. New York, maybe even San Francisco or Nashville. But few think of Seattle, which is a shame. The home of grunge, Starbucks and the Super Bowl Champs has a bustling and growing art scene, which includes lots of limited edition screenprints from the Ltd. Art Gallery.
Their latest show attempts to prove this by using only local artists to create hand pulled screenprints of things they loved as children. For artists such as Barry Blankenship, who did 10 pieces in the show as well as curated it, that means pop culture of the Eighties and Nineties. For others, maybe it’s a little more personal. But all of them are evocative, fun pieces of nostalgic that were screenprinted in Seattle.
The show is appropriately called Deep Pulls and it opens Friday June 20 at the Ltd. Art Gallery in Seattle, Washington. Below, see a few of the pop culture images in the show and find out more about its creation. Read More »

You’ve seen the video, now see it up close and personal.
Saturday in Los Angeles actor Tony Revolori joined Lego builder Ryan Ziegelbauer to officially reveal the 50,000 piece Lego version of Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel. The event was held at outdoor mall The Grove, as dozens of people stood around to watch the pair pull the curtain back, take pictures and answer questions. It took Ziegelbauer 72 days, totaling 575 hours, along with a team of ten to create the massive building. They had to source many of the pieces from collectors around the world, including 14 US states and all over Europe. The entire endeavor can be described in one word: massive.
The Lego Grand Budapest Hotel was build with the financial assistance of Fox to help promote the Blu-ray edition of Wes Anderson’s magnificent film. That takes places Tuesday June 17. Below, check out some photos of the event as well as some up close detailed shots, and find how where you can see the Lego Grand Budapest Hotel on display for the rest of the summer. Read More »
