This Just In! Comic Con a WOW!!!!!

Were you there? Did you see? OMG! Squeal!

Comic Con 2016 did not disappoint once again. The crowds, the sun, the heat, the cosplay, the “what was that?”, the stars of film and TV, the nights, all came together as it does in July each year. And the Chuck Jones Gallery on 5th Avenue was a nexus of activity for the pre-and-post-Convention Center¬†activities of hundreds of collectors and fans of all things Pop culture. We celebrated with Girls Drawin’ Girls, Jimmy Mulligan, the “Star Wars” art trio of James Coleman, Rodel Gonzalez, Rob Kaz; the heartwarming and charming Fabio Napoleoni, the inimitable Stan Lee, the dynamic William Shatner, the fabulous¬†Nancy Cartwright, and last, but not least, we introduced artist Mike Bilz and his fascinating work to our collectors.

Here’s a just a quick photo sample of what happened Friday evening by photographer Stephen Russo:

Video excerpts from the June Foray Reception at the Chuck Jones Gallery–Orange County

Our reception for legendary voice actress, June Foray (Witch Hazel, Granny, Cindy Lou Who, Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Natasha Fatale,) started off with a beautiful sunset over the Tustin Marine Corps Base (just to the southwest of our gallery) and went on into the night with a crowd of collectors & well-wishers.  Miss Foray, a vibrant 93 years old, spoke during the evening with hundreds of her fans, food was consumed — there was even music (coming soon!)  All-in-all a lovely evening.  More video to come, watch this space.
