Artist Mike Kungl at the Chuck Jones Gallery–San Diego, a Comic Con Moment

Artist Mike Kungl and his beautiful wife, Dana, made a rare public appearance last night at the Chuck Jones Gallery–San Diego, the first night of Comic Con 2012. The gallery displayed the largest collection of original paintings by the artist to have been exhibited in many years. 

The gallery, located at 232 Fifth Avenue in San Diego's notorious Gaslamp Quarter (just one half block north of the Convention Center) was thrilled to premier new original work and the artist's rare and sold-through editions, such as "Illudium Q36". Kungl has been chosen as a Chuck Jones Homage Artist, celebrating the Chuck Jones Centennial.
