A Bad News…, Some Good News…, And…………..An Exciting Event Announcement

Blow Up Cover
So, let’s start with a bad news.Unfortunately, this summer’s illustration workshop in Venice, Italy has been cancelled.I am sorry for those who have already resister ed, and those who have contacted me to get more details. Yes, I wanted to meet you too.

I hope we can make it work again in the future.

Next, some good news…

1) two of my works will be show in London, UK, at Association of Illustrators Images 34 show. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend the award ceremony and opening party but the show will be open to public from September 8 to 14, 2010, so if you are in London area, please stop by.

2) but I AM coming to the UK, in October, for British International Comic Show. In fact, the WHOLE The Unwritten team is going there together. So, I will see you dear comic fans, in Birmingham in mid-October! I can’t wait. I will post more about it as the date approaches.

3) Not in the US, or UK, but in Mexico? Workshop is over, but the exhibition is still going on at Amarillo Centro de DiseƱo in Xalapa, so please stop by before it closes in early September.

And, exciting new event announcement

It is official and just announced!

Tomer Hanuka, Sam Weber and I will be in a three person show at the Society of Illustrators in New York in September. Opening reception on September 10th (Friday). Please see details on the flyer.

We will all be SO so happy if you could be able to make it.

It felt like it was never going to work out at first. Now, images are in hands of a great printer, new works being created, funding in order, and we are close to ready to hang the show toward the end of the month.

We want to thank Mr. David Rhodes for his generosity without which this may not have happened. Big thanks to Attack guys at Wieden + Kennedy who created this kick ass flyer for us. And, everyone at the Society of Illustrators and Tim O’Brien for giving us opportunity and being patient with us all along the way.

Hope to see you on September 10th.
