When Legend of Korra came to a close, our sadness was tinged with the delight of confirmation that Korra and Asami were now officially a couple. Unfortunately, we've not had any official adventures for the two since ‚ÄĒ until this beautiful bit of art from Korra-co-creator Brian Konietzko appeared, that is!

Konietzko drew the piece, titled "Turtle-duck Date Night", for a new Korra and Avatar-themed Art Show taking place at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California starting this weekend, on March 7th, lasting for two weeks. Konietzko and his co-creator Michael DiMartino will be attending the opening and signing products purchased at the Gallery for the first 100 guests in line. Here's the full piece, plus a little commentary from Konietzko about it that he posted on Tumblr:

As for this piece, I used and modified Emily Tetri's production painting of Harmony Tower (designed by Lee Jung-Su). Otherwise, I drew and painted the rest of it. I based the turtle-duck boats on the charming swan boats I saw while visiting Ueno Park in Tokyo.


Want a copy for yourself? You'll have to attend the Gallery. 100 copies of the print will be available for sale on the opening night of the exhibition ‚ÄĒ and Konietzko will donate 100% of his share of sales from the print to an LGBTQ suicide prevention hotline.
