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!!


MEATBALL HEAD: An Art Gallery Celebrating Over 20 Years of Sailor Moon

For Love and Justice! Meatball Head is an artistic celebration of the beloved Japanese phenomenon Sailor Moon, brought to you by over 100 talented artists from around the industry. Curated by Nico Colaleo!

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! Enjoy free beer and wine, along with Sailor Moon-themed entertainment, decor, surprises, and photo-ready backdrops. Start planning now, because in the name of the Moon, you’re not going to want to miss this fantastic evening!

A few of my favorite pieces from the “Alice 150” show, including aricatuesday’s White Rabbit with working clock, Jessica Borutski’s Alice and Cheshire Cat print, henrieke-g’s adorable Dormouse watercolor and spookyzomo’s Alice and pig acrylic on wood (which I bought!)

These are only just a small sample of all the amazing pieces at the show tonight! It was a heck of a turnout to see such great work by so many incredible artists!

The show is still going on at the Nerdist Showroom behind Meltdown Comics until next Friday, and besides Zoe’s, all the pieces featured here are still available to purchase! So if you wanna still see all the incredible artwork in person and possibly own one of these one-of-a-kind creations yourself, stop by the showroom next week before they’re all taken down!
