About 2 years ago when I first started planning art show curating, one theme in particular was at the top of my list. And now it’s finally happening!!
MELTDOWN COMICS & NERDIST SHOWROOM PRESENT
MEATBALL HEAD: An Art Gallery Celebrating Over 20 Years of Sailor Moon

After fighting evil by moonlight, you are coordially welcomed to join us for the opening reception at Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics (7522 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles) from 7pm-11pm, Saturday, August 16th 2014!

Dr. Jin Montclare is busy performing dare-we-say revolutionary research in how Mother Nature can be improved upon. She specializes in the engineering of artificial proteins that will target everything from tissue regeneration and drug delivery to disorders that plague this terribly fragile mortal coil of ours.
Montclare holds a PhD in bioorganic chemistry from Yale and currently heads up the Montclare Lab for protein engineering & molecular design and serves as an associate professor at New York University’s Polytechnic School of Engineering.
Oh, and she is also applying her prowess to pedagogy, helping to design and develop (alongside her research team) a series of interactive chemistry apps for students K-12.
This week, in addition to being a guest at NYC Special Edition, which I’ll post more about later, I will have the linework from the above cover in a small exhibit at St. Mark’s Comics that’s all Image themed.
I won’t be selling it, but you’ll get to see it up close, say hi, check out the other awesome art there, and even make a purchase or two! I have it on high authority the great Alice Meichi Li made a Rocket Girl piece! Very flattering
