I am excited to share that my husband Nazim Nazim (Nazim Artist) has a painting featured in this exhibition. I hope all of you who are geographically close to Santa Ana, CA will stop by to see it. It is a painting of my character in the Irwin Allen classic TV series, Land of the Giants, where I played Marna in The Golden Cage! We will both be there for the opening night ceremonies!
Please join us for this exhibition featuring amazing drawings, paintings, photography and 3D work inspired by the dark and intricate nature of the graphic novel style.

Our exhibition celebrates a hugely popular aesthetic found in a plethora of today’s media.
This somewhat “dark” art-form encompasses a surprising complexity of genres including that of the Graphic Novel, PC/Video Gaming, Manga, Steampunk, Post Apocalyptic, Gothic, Anime, and countless derivatives and combinations of all of the above.
Loic Zimmermann, Super Villian
Often, many consider this art “fringe or outsider”…
yet through popular osmosis it has become an influential phenomenon, infusing popular culture through Film, Television, Fashion, Product Design, Advertising, and Music. While Science Fiction is commonly in the forefront of this imagery, the undercurrents of society are often explored through fascinating, sometimes squeamishly eccentric, aberrant and deliciously delirious avenues.
Karl Hauser, A Walk With Pliers
Join us for an event that is not to be missed!
