Press Paws@ Gallery Nucleus

Press Paws@ Gallery Nucleus

I will be part of a charity event called Press Paws, an art show featuring animals and video games which will benefit an animal shelter in LA called What's Up Dog? The show will take place at Gallery Nucleus on 2/9/13. The original painting of Tetra and her gang will be available at the show! I will later make prints as well, with all proceeds going to Berkeley East Bay Humane Society. If you're in the LA area, come take a look at other cool video game art and save dogs and kitties too! http://www.presspaws.org/
