“Jack Kirby’s 2001: A Space Odyssey comics were pure Kosmic Kirby at the top of his craft, expanding on the 2001 story in ways not even masters like Kubrick or Clarke could have imagined,” says Kirby Museum Acting Director, Rand Hoppe. “We can’t wait for fans to have their minds blown by the stories AND the visuals.”

If your in the NYC area you have to check out the “A Jack Kirby Odyssey” from May 11-13! It’s a celebration of the King of Comics’ pop-up exhibiting Arther C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey at One Art Space (23 Warren Street, NYC). It’s in celebration of the cinematic masterpiece with a giant reproduction, never seen before pencil art and multimedia presentations.

“The comics on display for A Jack Kirby Odyssey were painstakingly reproduced from the photocopies of Kirby’s pencil art,” adds Kirby Museum President, Tom Kraft. “The oversized comics at our Kirby 100 birthday celebration at One Art Space were big hits. We expect people will love seeing Kirby’s cosmic pencil art at large size, too.”

The time has come to send your original designs to the Her Universe Fashion Show. This fashion show celebrates “geek fashion”, and the winner is given the chance to design a fashion collection with Ashley Eckstein, founder of Her Universe, for Hot Topic. Basically, this is a Project Runway event for geeks. There is even a junior design competition for those of you who are under 18 years old. This is a fantastic competition for both men and women of all ages.

Here below are the fabulous winning designs from the 2017 show!



If you are not sewing inclined, this is a great show to come to if you are in the San Diego region. Rolling Stone put it on the list of “25 Best Things We Saw at San Diego Comic Con”, and many popular celebrities attend this event like our favorite Stark sisters, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. This is a huge mainstream event covered by popular media sources like Nylon and MTV. As a fashion lover, I consider this the best event to attend, so I would not miss out on it if you are in the area.

As a fellow seamstress myself, I love the opportunity to strut my stuff on the catwalk and show off all of my designs. This year I put together a school wide charity fashion show where I displayed 13 original outfits sewed and designed by me. If I were to compete in this show, I would stay true to my roots and designed a Barbie catwoman esque jumpsuit. Since I enjoy putting on a show, I would come out in my suit flock with an army of chic cats.

You can send admissions here.

For people 18+ https://heruniverse.submittable.com/submit/a567d454-c524-458e-b0b1-e9d05316c045/the-her-universe-fashion-show-design-competition-2018

I briefly spoke with Kenya Hardaway about her work on integrated fan expeirences for the FX Network. It took two months with the Marco Brambilla Studio and her team to work on this popup experience.I covered the opening of FX Networks The LEGION Chamber the artistic video installation inspired by the FX drama series Legion to design  which allows fans to step inside a 360-degree micro-theatre featuring a one-of-a-kind presentation by the internationally-acclaimed Marco Brambilla Studio. An extraordinary visual art piece hosted at Goya Studios in Hollywood this weekend (March 30 – April 1) only, The LEGION Chamber takes fans on a surreal journey through main character David Haller’s altered states of reality forcing them, like him, to question what is real and what is not. Once inside, participants will find themselves disconnected from the outside world – literally – and fully entrenched in David’s hypnotic digital realm. Legion, the acclaimed drama series from creator and executive producer Noah Hawley, will return to FX on Tuesday, April 3 at 10 PM ET/PT.

FX CELEBRATES SEASON 2 OF LEGION WITH INSTALLATION BY ACCLAIMED ARTIST MARCO BRAMBILLA STUDIO FROM MARCH 30 – APRIL 1 BEFORE THE S2 PREMIER OF LEGION (FX) TUESDAY, APRIL 3RD AT 10 PM ET/PT

Our aim was to create an experience that would take the viewer through multiple levels of Haller’s altered states of consciousness. A flood of moments, thoughts, and memories are reflected into fragmented mirrored surfaces, these kaleidoscopic reflections completely surround us and we have the sense of assuming the characters’ psychological POV. I produced “Fracture” with THE MILL, the world-renowned Visual Effects & Design Company with whom I’ve worked with many times before. Working together, we were able to achieve start-of-the-art production values for this immersive experience,” artist Marco Brambilla said.

I’m beyond excited to attend the opening of the 360 degree art exhibit of one of my favorite Marvel shows. I was curious when they announced Legion at SDCC two years ago but had no idea what to expect but from the first episode I knew this was unlike any other series on tv. The twists and turns, unexpected emotional connection and well it’s darned scary! Now with the premier just next week I can’t imagine the fan experience that FX has put together for all the lucky fangirls/fanboys in LA but I’m all in!

Any fan of the Marvel series LEGION has seen the madness but now we get to experience it in 360 degrees. Marco Brambilla Studio was inspired to create a one-of-a-kind presentation taking place at the Goya Studios in Hollywood. Fans will experience David’s altered states of reality as they try to figure out whats in their imagination and real as we count down the days to S2 from Noah Hawley, Executive Producer of the surreal drama.

RSVP Tickets

On working with Brambilla, Kenya Hardaway, SVP of Integrated Promotions at FX said, “We are excited to have Marco Brambilla’s amazing artistic piece, FRACTURE, to share with fans of Legion. As admirers of his works, we believed his innovative style could present a new perspective on David Haller’s world. FRACTURE, does just that – captivating the audience through a marvelous visual display.”

For more information on how to experience The LEGION Chamber, go to facebook.com/legionfx.

Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, Legion is the story of “David Haller” (Dan Stevens), a man who believed himself to be schizophrenic only to discover that he may actually be the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen.

From childhood, David shuffled from one psychiatric institution to the next until, in his early 30s, he met and fell in love with a beautiful and troubled fellow patient named “Syd” (Rachel Keller). After Syd and David shared a startling encounter, he was forced to confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real. Syd led David to “Melanie Bird” (Jean Smart), a demanding but nurturing therapist who heads a team of specialists – “Ptonomy” (Jeremie Harris), “Kerry” (Amber Midthunder) and “Cary” (Bill Irwin) – each of whom possesses a unique and extraordinary gift. Together, they helped David to recognize and harness his hidden powers. With their support, David finally unlocked a deeply suppressed truth – he had been haunted his entire life by a malicious parasite of unimaginable power. Known as the “Shadow King,” this malevolent creature appeared in the form of David’s friend “Lenny” (Aubrey Plaza), but is actually an ancient being named “Amahl Farouk.” In an epic showdown, David and his friends battled his demon, ultimately forcing it from David’s body. Unfortunately, Farouk found a new host – Melanie’s husband “Oliver Bird” (Jemaine Clement) – and escaped. Just when they thought they’d earned a moment of respite, a mysterious orb appeared and took David away to an unknown place. With David and Oliver missing and Farouk on the loose, the team forms an unlikely alliance with their former enemy “Clark” (Hamish Linklater) and his well-funded government organization, Division III. Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) is on a new path to attaining infinite and world-ending power.

Noah Hawley serves as Executive Producer, along with John C

ameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Legion is the latest project from Hawley and Cameron, two of the executive producers of the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning FX anthology series Fargo. Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.

This blerd is counting down the days to see the Solo origin story that will show how Han, Chewie and the game with Lando that had them winning the Millennium Falcon! So imagine my excitement when Lucasfilm saying that Denny’s, Esurance, General Mills, Nissan, SOLO Cup and Symantec are working on a worldwide promotional campaign to support “Solo: A Star Wars Story,”opening on May 25.

I’m not sure what the other brands will do but I KNOW Nissan will have this fangirl carchick squealing like a piglet! Nissan’s collaboration from the last two films had me oohing at the LA Auto show with all the cars I’d want if I had a million dollars and a twenty car garage! Heck that Titan Truck At-At had me thinking I might switch sides for the Empire (they have ALL the best toys and the most stylish uniforms).

Really when the Nissan design team collaborates with a film they don’t come to play because the Nissan Leaf car’s designed for ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ impressed me with the spirit of the three guiding women.

“Our six promotional partners for ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ have done a fantastic job developing first-class, innovative campaigns in support of the film,” says Lylle Breier, Sr. Vice President, Global Marketing Partnerships, Walt Disney Studios. “We are excited to share the compelling experiences and relevant activations that our partners have created for our fans.”
