Alice in Wonderland artists at Nucleus

The artists behind Tim Burton’s new Alice In Wonderland film will make a one-time appearance for a panel, Q&A and book signing this Saturday afternoon at Alhambra’s Gallery Nucleus.

The event will begin at 2pm and run all afternoon, Saturday March 13th. Nucleus will also be the first and only location for you to purchase a copy of the ‘Art of’ book, Alice in Wonderland: A Visual Companion, before its release date (March 30th). Speakers in attendance will include character designer Michael Kutsche and concept artists Dylan Cole, Scott Lukowski, Steven Messing, Daphne Yap, Christian Gossett and Jim McPherson. For more information, visit the Nucleus Gallery website.

    I follow two of the designers on DeviantArt, this would be wonderful thing to attend.

  • Hulk

    I wish the writer would also come so I can slap him.

    Did they have to mimic Tim Burton’s drawings?

  • Mr. James

    I’d love to ask them why it was decided that the movie had to take place inside a world that looked like it had been crapped out of a computer like TRON instead of building actual tangible sets that would have allowed me to enjoy the film instead of realizing I paid a ton of extra money to watch an hour-and-a-half 3D video game trailer.

    …with poor acting as well. God that movie stunk.

  • Tim Hodge

    The writer is a her: Linda Wolverton of “Beauty & the Beast”, “The Lion King”, and “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers”.

  • Mark

    Linda Wolverton was the “typer” on Beauty and the Beast and the Lion King. Not the “writer.”

  • Toronto’s Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera did character designs–I’m surprised they’re not part of it, though maybe it’s just because they’re not in the area. They run Imaginism Studios (there’s an ad here on the Brew) and they have a bunch of their concept work up on their blog: http://imaginismstudios.blogspot.com/

    No, thanks Jerry, Im going to stick with the 1951 film, or heck with it even the original silent Alice comedies.

  • I will be launching a newly redesigned and redeveloped Scott Lukowski official site (http://www.scottlukowski.com) that very same day on Saturday. Stay tuned!
