Trigger Studio Animator Opens Art Exhibit, Hosts Workshop in Los Angeles

A Japanese animator who has worked on series such as FLCL, Kill La Kill, Promare, Evangelion, and more is hosting his own art workshop and art exhibit this December in Los Angeles at Gallery Nucleus! The Trigger animator who goes by the pen name Sushio will be in attendance on opening night December 10th, but if you can’t make it to the first day the exhibit will remain open all the way to January 8th, 2023.

The exhibit is free for all to attend but if you have high hopes of attending the in-person 4-hour-long art workshop, it’s not only EXTREMELY limited seating, but it will cost you $120 to attend. If you don’t live in California the workshop will be available to attend via Zoom as well but the price is still going to be $120. The 4-hour workshop takes place on day 1, December 10th, before the art exhibit portion opens. Starting at 12:30 pm the first hour of the workshop is a presentation of Sushios’ past works and starting at 1 pm is a live drawing and animation demo for the last three hours. During the workshop, attendees are encouraged to ask questions and interact with Sushio directly as he will be joined by a translator.
