  • Artist Veronica Hebarb shares some of her lovely illustrations on her blog.  This Tuesday from 7:00 to 8:00, she’ll be speaking with collaborators Andy Fish, Allison Bamford, and Lindsay Small about their new show “Atomic Hearts” at Space 242 in Boston.
  • Meanwhile, superhero artist Jim Lee has a gallery opening this Thursday from 7:00-9:00 at the Chuck Jones Gallery in San Diego.

    Thanks for the link, guys. Funnily I did consider having “Annie are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?” blaring from the hi-fi, but in the end I left it silent.
