ILLUSTRATE, MY LOVE

If the latest generation of cartoonists – those who illustrate the mundane, ironic, and quietly revelatory aspects of modern life – made valentines, what would they consist of? A toothpick and a glittery sticker? A scrap of found lace and a chocolate ladybug? Get a hint tonight, when Gabrielle Bell, Kevin Huizenga, and Anders Nilsen, three cartoonists published by Drawn & Quarterly, appear at Skylight Books. As part of a national tour promoting their books Lucky (Bell), Curses (Huizenga), and Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow (Anders), the three will present a slide show, sign copies, and speak about their work and the passions that fuel it, whether existential, cathartic, or merely, deeply, poetic. 7 p.m. Free. 1818 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz, (323) 660-1175. Skylightbooks.com; Drawnandquarterly.com.
