Chuck Jones Gallery: Spotlight on San Diego


Our southern California consultants got together yesterday at the beautiful Chuck Jones Gallery in San Diego for a conference led by the amazing Greg Winston (see photo below.)  The gallery is located at 232 Fifth Avenue, in the heart of San Diego's famed GasLamp District, and is just wrapping up an incredible exhibit of rare Dr. Seuss editions (on paper, canvas & sculpture, too!) 

When you first enter the gallery you're greeted by the life-size bronze sculpture of Dr. Seuss' Lorax (who has a permanent home on the campus of the University of California–San Diego.) 

The gallery is designed in such a way that although it's a big loft-like space, it has areas that evoke the intimate feeling of your own home. 

There are, of course, big dramatic architectural gestures that perfectly frame the featured art of, in this case, Marcus Pierson.

With all of its nooks & crannies, you can spend hours enjoying the artwork & finding that one (or more!) special works of art that will be a perfect addition to your collection.

Gallery director, Mike Dicken, and his staff are busy getting ready for Comic Con International which opens Thursday, July 22nd and runs through Sunday, July 25th.  The gallery will be host to two incredible artists on Thursday and Friday evenings (see your invitation below) as well as weekend signings with Anthony Winn and Mike Kungl.  Make your plans to attend & remember to RSVP at 888-294-9880 or via email, SanDiego@ChuckJones.com.

The Indomitable Stan Lee

Night Only! 

Legendary Comics Creator to Appear at
Chuck Jones Gallery

Unveils the Art of Stripperella for Comic
Con International Collectors

San Diego, CA—The
Chuck Jones Gallery is thrilled to announce that the legendary comic book
superhero creator, POW! Entertainment’s own Stan Lee, will be making a rare in-gallery
appearance, Thursday, July 22nd during the gallery’s opening night
reception (from 6 to 9 PM) for the revealing exhibition of new original and
limited edition 2-D & 3-D art from his provocative graphic series Stripperella.

Stripperella first
gained international attention in 2003 when Lee’s super-heroine action animated
series débuted on Spike TV.   Originally based on (and voiced by) Pamela
Anderson, Stripperella’s ‘day’ job (O.K., it was a night job) as one of the
most famous exotic dancers in the world was her ‘cover’ for her super-powers:
enhanced reflexes and senses combined with really sexy stripper moves, made her
an instant international hit with that most-coveted of marketing demographics,
young males between the ages of 18 and 34.

Stripperella, poster edition of 250, signed by Stan Lee & Anthony Winn, call or write for pricing.

As imagined and brought to life by Lee and his
collaborators, Stripperella was at
once a crushing blow to the stereotypical blond iconography and at the same
time it was glamorous and provocative, all the while winking at the audience
with its double entendre-laced dialogue. 

Now, in collaboration with artist and protégé, Anthony Winn,
Lee has re-imagined Stripperella (red
hair!) and brought her to fiery new life as an animated digital cartoon.  New limited edition artwork, including a
terrific new bronze sculpture, will be premiered at the exhibition’s opening,
July 22nd. 

Whatever you may think you know about the legendary comics
creator Stan Lee is only a sliver of what this icon of the comicbook world has
going on in his life.  Only superlatives
can be used to describe him: 
super-dynamic, super-imaginative, and super-genius.   For
over seven decades, Lee has dominated the comicbook superhero field with his
ingenious creations: their super-human triumphs and all-too-human failures
resonating with millions of readers and fans around the world.  And now, with his exciting new company POW!
Entertainment, Stan is creating more fantastic concepts than ever before.

Anthony Winn has been mentored by the incomparable Stan Lee
since 1999 and their collaborative efforts have resulted in some of the comic
legend’s most provocative and original artwork for a variety of media.  Winn’s innate artistic talent was noticed at
an early age after his family’s harrowing escape from Viet Nam at the close of
the war in 1975.  Settling in southern
California, Winn was soon under the spell of Spider-Man and the legendary work
of Stan Lee.
