I am a lucky person to have friends like you who inspire me and stimulate my creative brain as well as my “play brain”! (left: comic superstar Paul Pope, amazing illustrator and musician Marcellus Hall and me).

It has been a year since I graduated from SVA MFA Illustration program. It is my friend Ai Tatebayashi‘s turn. She is a very talented illustrator with a great sense of humor. Keep watching her progress! (right: after her thesis show).
