Q Pop Shop presented a tribute art show to Akira Toriyama, who is best known as the creator of the manga/anime series Dr. Slump and Dragon Ball and the character designer for such video game series as Dragon Quest and Chrono Trigger. A wide variety of artists submitted artwork influenced by Akira Toriyama, and many attendees of the show's opening night arrived wearing cosplays based on Toriyama's characters. The show was held at the Q2 mini gallery located in the Little Tokyo area of Los Angeles, CA.
As part of the art show's opening night celebration, attendees could participate in a "power up" contest and a cosplay contest with prizes awarded to the winners.
Attendees started lining up outside the art gallery several hours before the doors opened.
