October-November Traveling Schedule

When I am in my studio, I don’t have enough time for anything other than work and work related things. So when universities, colleges and/or design organizations invite me to speak, I try my best to fit as many as I can into my schedule. (Although, unfortunately I cannot schedule them all recently.)

October and November have been extremely busy months for me.

I was at CCA in San Francisco mid month, then last week there was a one day trip up to Western Connecticut State University, then meeting with a faculty and students from Art Institute Florida the following day. Next week, I will be meeting with Marywood University at Type Directors Club as well as attending at School of Visual Art MFA Illustration program open house.

And the grand finale of all these is at the late month in Hong Kong for illustration competition judging and conference.

I have to admit that I over-scheduled and a bit exhausted, but I am looking forward to all the upcoming event, and of course a bit of a quiet time in December.
