There is no denying the overwhelming success of this past summer's blockbuster Toy Story 3 and it is already being deemed another classic Pixar film.  The project took years to come to fruition and the wait was worth it.

This Sunday, Nucleus is excited to welcome two amazing talents who contributed to the success of the project.  Learn about the process of the film from script to screen from Art Director Robert Kondo and Story Artist James Robertson presenting a rare visual presentation.  A Q&A session and book signing will follow.

Thank you to those who attended the Moonshine Book Signing this past Friday--here's a final Moonshine Artist Spotlight for you all!

Christian Schellewald has worked in the entertainment industry for over 15 years--as layout artist on Balto, as production designer on The Road to El Dorado, The Prince of Egypt, and Shrek 2, and as art director on Over the Hedge. He's also the talented artist behind LA<>SF, a captivating sketchbook depicting his everyday observations of living in California, specifically Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Here are Christian's two contributions to Moonshine, Datsun and Long Beach OT. Although we just de-installed the show, these two pieces will still be available for viewing here, so take a look! Datsun, in particular, is magnificently detailed, revealing the complex structures that lie under the hood.

The long-awaited Moonshine book signing is tomorrow! To remind you all of the excellent details and prizes...
