First of all, Happy Turkey Day to everyone in the US.

3×3 magazine of illustration has just come out with their new issue, and my dear studio-mate Marcos Chin is a featured and cover artist of this issue. I am also proud to announce I had an honor to write his article. (left: cover by Marcos Chin)  just in case if you had wondered about my bio, yes, you are right, somehow it got written wrong. I wish I had 13 years of experience in illustration… and no, I had not worked as an illustrator in japan, I was in PR.

Once again, thank you so much for buddy and ex-roomy James Jean for giving a talk to my class at SVA today. Also big thank you to two other guest lecturers who kindly came to my class to speak this semester; Monika Aichele and Joshua Gorchov. You guys all rock!
