Happy holidays!Marcos Martin (comic artist:”Batgirl Year One”) and Muntsa Vicente (fashion illustrator) are now back home in Barcelona after enjoying being New Yorkers for three months. We met in October and quickly became close friends. Marcos was kind enough to come into my class as a guest lecturer and encouraged second year cartooning majors at SVA to pursue their dreams. You were the best! Sunday brunch at Park or dinner at Florent won’t be the same without you two!
