The Art of Blizzard event at Gallery Nucleus

It was an unusually cold night in Los Angeles, but that didn't stop over 600 Blizzard fans from coming out on Saturday to wait in line for the opening night of the Art Exhibit and Book Launch of The Art of Blizzard at Gallery Nucleus.

Several media outlets were on site to interview Chris Metzen and Nick Carpenter before the crowd of people gathered inside the gallery to get in yet another line. This time, they waited with their massive, 376 page copy of The Art of Blizzard, as artists Wei Wang, Glenn Rane, Laurel Austin, and several others signed copies. 

Art sculptures featuring characters from Blizzard were on display among the 65 pieces of framed art which include black and white sketches and full-color illustrations that can be found inside the book.

Images from Fallen games could be found upstairs, where art demos took place throughout the night, touching on unpublished games that Chris Metzen, Samwise Didier and Nick Carpenter are sharing for the first time in The Art of Blizzard.

A scavenger hunt took place and a bunch of raffle prizes were given out during the event. Guests were also treated to mana and health potions to keep them energized!
