Illustration Friday - Open (Heart Surgery)

I know most of us have felt like we have been through this procedure without the benefit of anesthesia. Open (Heart Surgery) for Illustration Friday. This week there is a twist, Illustration Friday gallery show ... with voting and to be part of a show at bookstore and art gallery in Long Beach Show opening November 3rd and displaing 25 IF entries. That is such a great idea. Go read more about it here ... and go enter your art! ;)
