Adorable Illustrations of Pop-Culture Couples


Nan Lawson’s “Meet Cute” – in which the illustrator captures the profiles of iconic pop culture couples – was a big hit at L.A.’s Gallery1988, so like anything successful in that city, now there’s a sequel. “Meet Cute 2” features inspired pairings from the likes of Twin Peaks, The X-Files, Buffy, Bob’s Burgers, and more; Lawson’s marvelous images of visages are on display through Saturday, which means we just figured out a great Valentine’s Day date for you L.A. folks. But if you can’t make it, we’ve got a few of our favorites to share.
