Blow Up: Hanuka, Shimizu, Weber is an exhibit at the Society of Illustrators in NY that features three artists I’ve profiled previously, Tomer Hanuka, Yuko Shimizu and Sam Weber.
The organizers make a point of the disparate backgrounds and visual approaches of the three artists.
Hanuka’s richly colored comics illustrations, Shimizu’s admixture of Yukio-e and pop culture and Weber’s sometimes brooding, often monochromatic intensity make for an interesting study in contrasts.
Though there isn’t an online gallery of work from the exhibit, you can find plenty of work by all three illustrators on their respective blogs and websites (listed below).
Blow Up: Hanuka, Shimizu, Weber is on display at the Society of Illustrators, New York until October 16, 2010.

Hi Charley, Thanks so much for posting this. We really appreciate it. Hope to see you at the opening.
A friend and I went up yesterday to see this show and it’s fantastic: highly, highly recommended. Not only is the work remarkable, but the downstairs gallery has – in addition to the additional, smaller work you’d expect to find down there – a lot of process material for the large works on view upstairs. I think we spent twice as much time down there as we did in the main room…
Great to know. Thanks, Tm.

Shimizu is just amazing. Wonderful, sexy stuff.
