It was a twofer at Gallery Nucleus this past weekend! Downstairs at the main space is an exhibit for Zombies in Love 2+1 with Scott C’s absolutely adorable illustrations for the book. Upstairs at the atrium is a second exhibit showcasing Sam Bosma’s Fantasy Sports No.1 and his fantastic series of fantasy themed characters.
Zombie in Love 2+1 follows the next chapter in Mortimer and Mildred’s undead lives after they find a baby on their doorstep. It’s cute, sweet, and Scott’s illustrations always bring a smile to my face.
Fantasy Sports is Sam Bosma’s debut graphic novel about Wiz-Kid and Mean Mug’s adventures in tomb raiding and basketball. I still have to finish reading it but so far, it’s clever, funny, and an adventure in itself!
Saturday was packed with plenty of things. During the afternoon, Sam Bosma held a workshop about world building and his illustration process. The room was pretty packed and I didn’t have time to sneak a peak with preparations for the night. In the evening, the main floor hosted a zombie themed baby shower and people were encouraged to dress up as zombies. Scott did a reading, there were baby shower games, and some refreshments. Sam and Scott also sat down to do a signing for their work. I snagged some pins and asked Scott for a zombiefied portrait! 😀
Both exhibits will be up until August 9, 2015 and they are also viewable on the Nucleus site (or click here for the event pages: Zombie in Love 2+1 and Sam Bosma’s Fantasy Sports and Solo). If you happen to be around Alhambra, California, you should definitely stop by and check them out in person!
