A tease of the Gallery1988 Yu-Gi-Oh! art show pieces included in this post

Gallery1988 and Konami’s Yu-Gi-Oh! art show was a year in the making. Today, the exhibition ended. What will happen to all of that Yu-Gi-Oh! artwork? Although Gallery1988 sometimes does sell original pieces at its other art shows, that isn’t the case for this Yu-Gi-Oh! exhibition.

Other than the six limited edition screen prints and the commemorative poster, none of the Yu-Gi-Oh! pieces are available for purchase, explained Courtney Barnett, the manager of Gallery1988. This request came from Konami, who will be holding on to all of the art now that the show has closed.

So what will happen to all of the pieces after that? Who knows. Charity auction? Traveling art show? Permanent archival in the Museum of Modern Art?

For now, enjoy a look at more works from the Yu-Gi-Oh! art show…

Are you an artist who enjoyed seeing the variety of works in the Yu-Gi-Oh! art show? If you make pop culture pieces and would like to participate in this type of project — working with licensors to create official art for marketing and promotional campaigns — consider reaching out to Gallery1988 to join its pool of artists.

Gallery1988 is currently accepting portfolio submissions, said Barnett.

The success of the Yu-Gi-Oh! art show is thanks in part to Gallery1988’s diverse network of artists, who are skilled in a variety of mediums and who each have their own distinctive style that they can adapt to all pop-culture genres. So no matter what type of art you like to create, don’t be shy about reaching out!

A tease of the Gallery1988 Yu-Gi-Oh! art show pieces included in this post

Of the more than 50 pieces of Yu-Gi-Oh! art at Gallery1988, there is one that you will never, ever be able to see anywhere else. It’s a piece that no one can ever own, and once the art exhibition closes, it is forever lost. What is it?

It’s this wall mural, titled Yugi Muto, by Haste.

As the gallery’s only perishable piece, Yugi Muto also has the distinction of being the largest; it spans nearly the entire height of the gallery’s walls. Haste happens to be the artist who designed and painted Gallery1988’s storefront.

Despite its size and position next to the entrance, some gallery visitors (including myself) almost missed this piece. You really have to move a few steps back in order to take in the entire thing.

One of the big draws of the art show is an exhibit by Pretty in Plastic, a fine art fabrication studio based in Hollywood. Touted as a “once-in-a-lifetime installation,” Pretty in Plastic’s sculpture of Yami Yugi, called Duel Time, greeted all the excited visitors.

Front of Gallery1988 in Los Angeles, California

Have you visited Gallery1988 and Konami Cross Media NY’s Yu-Gi-Oh! tribute art show? The exhibition, which includes over 50 original pieces inspired by the franchise created by Kazuki Takahashi, celebrates the 20th anniversary of the global Yu-Gi-Oh! phenomenon. As the show enters its final weekend, let’s take a look at the exhibits and some of the excitement that took place at the pop culture art gallery in Los Angeles.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! art show kicked off with an invite-only reception the evening of July 4 for some of the most important people in the Yu-Gi-Oh! business. Representatives from Konami Digital Entertainment, Shueisha, d-rights, TV Tokyo, VIZ Media, Crunchyroll, Funimation, and other Yu-Gi-Oh! industry partners arrived to enjoy a sneak peek of the exhibition and partake in the open bar.

One person who was notably absent from the opening reception was Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi. In his stead, Yoshihisa Heishi, the founding editor of Yu-Gi-Oh! and a director at Shueisha, was present.

The following evening, July 5, Gallery1988 opened its doors to the public. Over 75 people lined up to be among the first to see the historic exhibition. The small art gallery, which is only about as wide as a single-aisle passenger plane, was packed full.

Today, Konami posted a Facebook album showing many of the enthusiastic visitors on the opening night.

Many visitors picked up one or more of the show’s six limited edition screen prints. The gallery kindly bagged and boarded each 18-by-24-inch print for free to protect the precious artwork. But the prints were such strong sellers that the gallery quickly ran out of backing boards. Whoops!

A screen print is considered a unique piece of art. Each of the Yu-Gi-Oh! prints was made by a shop in Seattle, Washington, and individually numbered, with only 100 of each design created. At just $50 each, the prints are a steal. Once they sell out, they are gone forever!

In addition to the six different screen prints, Gallery1988 also offered the Yu-Gi-Oh! art show’s commemorative poster for sale. This piece by Joshua Budich measures 18-by-20 inches and costs $10.

Yu-Gi-Oh! fans who want to buy prints but who can’t make it to the show might still have a chance to get them.

“There will be some variants and other formats available online after the show ends,” Konami said on Facebook.

Gallery1988’s Twitter account, @Galleries1988, has also stated more than once that remaining prints will be sold online after the show closes on July 14.

Still, there’s no guarantee that the prints won’t sell out before then, so if you can, do make every effort to attend this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Aside from that, the Yu-Gi-Oh! art show is definitely an event you want to see in person. There’s no way that looking at any number of photographs of the exhibits will ever replicate the experience of seeing them in person.

Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Author Responds to New Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards

Preview of the artwork of Dragon Maid Husky from the Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG

New cards coming to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game have caught the eye of a popular manga author. Today, the official Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! news hub YU-GI-OH.jp unveiled three new card themes debuting this August in Japan. One of the themes is called Dragon Maid and features — you guessed it — a human woman with dragon horns, wings, and a tail who is dressed as a maid.

The announcement included pictures of two cards from this theme. Dragon Maid Husky (shown above) is a charming dragon maid ready to serve you. Dragon Maids’ Kindness (below) has Husky and four other dragon maids busily prepping a dining room.

This news quickly made it to coolkyousinnjya, the creator of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, who took an immediate liking to the cards.

Dragon maids are in Yu-Gi-Oh!!” tweeted coolkyousinnjya. “I want to build a deck with them!”

C’mon, Konami, you can make it happen. Send some cards to coolkyousinnjya!

Any fans of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid out there? What do you think of these cards?

Check out the Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid manga from Seven Seas Entertainment and the anime on Crunchyroll and Funimation.

Poster for Gallery1988 Yu-Gi-Oh! tribute art show

Konami and Los Angeles’ Gallery1988 have unveiled the official poster and the dates for the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! tribute art show. The exhibition celebrates the 20th anniversary of Yu-Gi-Oh!, with over 50 of the gallery’s most popular artists creating original pieces and prints inspired by the franchise.

The exhibition kicks off with an invite-only sneak peek and opening reception on July 4 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Then, the gallery will host a public opening on July 5 from 7 to 10 p.m.

After that, the exhibition will run from July 6 to 14 during the gallery’s regular business hours — Wednesday through Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (The gallery is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays).

The Yu-Gi-Oh! art show is free to attend.

Gallery1988 is located at 7308 Melrose Avenue, between Fuller Avenue and Poinsettia Place, across the street from The Groundlings Theatre. If you will be at Anime Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the gallery is about a 20-minute drive away. There are public transportation options that stop at or near the gallery as well.

Photographer Wanted!

Gallery1988 is looking to hire a photographer to work the openings on July 4 and 5.

If you have the skills and equipment and want to play a part in this historic event, please contact Gallery1988 with your resume and samples.

Dark Magician and San Diego Comic Con fans unite! Today, ShopYuGiOh.com added an exclusive T-shirt just for you. The ultimate wizard in terms of attack and defense is posing staunchly in this new design on a heather grey short-sleeve T-shirt. The accompanying Japanese text says “Dark Magician,” with “SD 2019” beneath it.

As always, ShopYuGiOh.com’s exclusive shirts are only available for a limited time online (and not at SDCC). Get yours today in a unisex or women’s cut starting at $23.95.

SDCC 2019 kicks off with preview night on July 17 and runs through July 21. Look for Konami in the exhibit hall at booth 3713, where there will be fun activities, previews of upcoming products, and goods for sale all weekend long. Keep your eyes on the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG events page for more details, coming soon.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Mark of the Dragon exclusive shirt for Anime Expo 2019 is also still available for sale online. Grab these shirts now before they disappear forever.
