* Orders shipping to US addresses only. If you add non-blind box items to your cart the regular shipping rates will apply, but you can place separate orders to get free shipping for a part of your order if you’d like.

Note: Right now our store in Chicago is closed to the public, and we are shipping orders on a modified schedule (every 2-3 days) so that our staff can minimize exposure. Thanks for your understanding.

March Exhibit: Nellie Le

Get ready for a cute overload when our March exhibit featuring the works of LA-based artist and illustrator Nellie Le opens!

Born in 1986 and raised in the suburbs east of Los Angeles, Nellie grew up watching mid-century Disney shorts which had a huge influence on her work today. She works mostly in gouache and acrylic gouache in a color palette influenced by the colors of her childhood.

Nellie has worked under two more of our favorite artists, Amanda Visell and Michelle Valigura, and in fact it was at a party at their home where we first met Nellie a few years ago.

Come on out on March 21st for the opening reception to meet Nellie and help us welcome Spring with some colorful, fun art!


UPDATE:

We have decided that it’s in everyones best interest if we cancel the opening reception for our new exhibit with Nellie Le that was scheduled for this coming Saturday. 

We will still be hanging the new exhibit and will have an online preview (sign up at http://previews.rotofugi.com for first notification) but having a gathering at this point seems a little irresponsible.

Our store and gallery in Chicago will remain open normal hours for the time being, but that may very well change as things develop. 11am-7pm Monday-Friday and 10am-6pm Saturday-Sunday.

We have an online store at http://rotofugi.com and the option to either have items shipped or made available for in store pickup. Your support during this difficult time is certainly appreciated.
