DKNG STUDIOS


This weekend, at Gallery1988 (West), join them for what is sure to be one of the most talked about art exhibits of the year - Art Awakens. 3 years in the making, Gallery1988 have teamed up with The Walt Disney Company, LucasFilm and Bad Robot to celebrate the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, while raising money for a worthwhile cause.

Almost 100 pieces of artwork have been created to pay homage to the film series and the upcoming new release, all set to debut with a special weekend event you can attend. The pieces will be on display Saturday, Nov. 14th and Sunday, Nov. 15th from 11 AM - 10 PM each day at G1988 (West).

A majority of the artwork will become available on eBay Friday, with 7 screenprints being exclusive for in-gallery 
purchase only, so even outside of Los Angeles you can enjoy the show. The gallery will also be sending out an email and updating their social media with the eBay link once it is live. After Sunday, this show will no longer be on display, so make sure to stop by if you can!

SOME IMPORTANT NOTES: There is a STRICT one screenprint (per artist) per person & payment method rule. There is a very limited amount of these screenprints created, considering the subject matter. There will be NO LINING UP at the gallery early Friday. There will be security at the gallery making sure there is no line before 11:30 PM on Friday night.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh.
