About the Artist

Scott Campbell (Scott C.) is a maker of paintings, illustrations, comics, kid’s books and
video games. He studied illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, focusing on

as a concept artist on children’s video games. Four years later, he joined Double Fine
Productions as Art Director on such games as the critically acclaimed Psychonauts and
Brutal Legend. Alongside this career in games, he has published numerous comics and
created paintings that have appeared in galleries and publications around the world. Some
of his most notable projects include the Great Showdowns series, Double Fine Action

Los Angeles, CA — Artist Cuddly Rigor Mortis will be exhibiting her delightfully playful
body of work, Happy As Kings, in our second­level atrium gallery this September! Inspired

About the Artist
In 2005, Kristin Tercek started Cuddly Rigor Mortis LLC, which began as a collection of
handmade plush dolls. After years of sewing her characters, the artist decided to broaden
her horizons by painting. No longer limited by sewing patterns, the family of adorable CRM
characters has continued to come to life in the form of cute foods, charming botanicals, and
animals both real and imagined. The subject of this latest collection is one that is close to
Tercek’s heart. After the artist’s lifelong challenge with depression, finding appreciation and
happiness in the little things in life became important. It is the artist’s goal to bring smiles to
the faces of all who enjoy her work.

About Nucleus
Since October of 2004, Nucleus has strived to be a welcoming gathering place for the art
loving community by offering quality art, art related goods, and rarities. Focusing primarily
on gallery exhibits, we have also had benefit auctions, product signings, music events, and
artist lectures. After three and a half years, we moved one block east to a much larger and
more dynamic space. Still in the heart of quaint downtown Alhambra, we reopened in
March of 2008 with over 2000 square feet of open gallery space, 1000 square feet of
shop/boutique, and over 3000 square feet of studio/production space. Having exhibited
both local artists and artists from abroad, and catering to an international customer base,
we offer an extensive collection of original contemporary, illustrated, graphic, commercial,
and narrative art all of which are carefully catalogued on our website.
