It was the entrance to the fan show of the year!
The Dreamatorium. Who wouldn’t want a chance to play in there?! I did and it was surreal. And no, an Evil Joe didn’t come out. Or maybe he did?!
The PixelDrip Galleries art show Six Seasons and a Movie Art Show was simply fantastic and streets ahead. It was an absolute honor and a blast to be included in the art show to help support and promote NBC’s, Critics Choice Award for Best TV Comedy, Community. *
Meeting series creator/writer Dan Harmon; Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley); Gillian Jacobs (Britta) and Erik Charles Nielsen (Garrett); was a blast. One could tell they were excited and I truly believe, humbled by the art. As a fan of the show, I was always greatly impressed by how much fan interaction they have in an online presence. And, was even more impressed by them in person. They were very nice and very approachable. You couldn’t ask for a better experience.

The artists on display were just as awesome too. I was impressed by the sheer amount of pieces being shown. The art styles and approaches among the pieces made them all stand on their own. Everything from drawings, paintings, mixed media, custom toys, video games and more were on display. It was enough to keep you busy for hours.
Saturday was filled with various activities to keep any Greendale student occupied. There was the puppy parade, a documentary being shot, character guessing board game, trivia contest, look-a-like contest and even demos for a couple of fan made video games. If that’s not enough there was an hourly raffle to win various prizes, including VIP tickets to the exclusive event Saturday night. Which was very entertaining. There was some DJ action and live music courtesy of Jazzerection. Let’s not forget about the guests on honor, some cast and crew from the Community TV show!
You really don’t need the Dreamatorium to play this one out. If you’re in the L.A. area go and check it out. Mark Batella and the PixelDrip crew put on one amazing show and will be in multiple locations throughout the summer. Visit www.pixeldripgallery.com for info. Even Evil Abed would say it’s worth the trip!
Ps- I can’t forget a special thanks to my Uncle Mike and Uncle Greg for having me for an extended weekend. Without them I wouldn’t have been able to attend and I am extremely grateful.
