So these came across the Blog@Newsarama desks yesterday, and I just wanted to put the information out there for anyone who might want to check them out:
- The Hero Initiative is throwing a party on April 2 to celebrate Ed Hannigan: Covered, an exhibit at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco. The show, which features (as the title suggests) years of Hannigan’s comic book covers and some other original art, launched around Valentine’s Day and will run until June, with the party in April sponsored by Comic Outpost, a San Francisco-based retailer.
- Hiro Murai, a Japanese animator and director of music videos for The Fray and Bloc Party, has been recruited by Nokia to create a music video with electronic musician Dan Deacon. The video? Well, don’t get too excited, folks; it’s just a long-form ad for The Ovi Store, where you can buy applications, ringtones, videos and all that good stuff for your cell phone.
