Any store with a The Art of Totoro book in the front is automatically AWESOME.

Ben Zhu, our good friend and NUCLEUS storeowner. He's also an incredibly talented artist who decided to leave the field of video game concept art to pursue his dream of running this store, and what an amazing store it is. We're proud of you, Ben! Now, everyone go support it! The store has so much cool stuff that my friends and I have already become frequent customers...

At the heart of the store lies the NUCLEUS gallery. The gallery takes up nearly half the store's real estate, with two floors of space for artists to show their work. It's very impressive, to say the least, and pays wonderful tribute to the creators whose work is featured prominently on the shelves.

Ben's hard work is already paying off in seeing everyone rally around him to support the store. This is an incredibly gutsy thing for him to do, and we all know his heart is in the right place. I want to see this store do well so badly, so come on, people! Let's do this! Spread the word! Nucleus is here! :)
