(Then to spend a weekend in Minneapolis with a friend illustrator, talented Erik T. Johnson and his family.Next week, when I am back to New York, I will be taking part in a panel discussion/talk at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) with fellow illustrators Marcos Chin, Fernanda Cohen, Fred Harper and Zina Saunders. The talk is titled: How I Got My First Job; basically we hope to encourage young illustrators/students by embarrassingly revealing our humble starts in the field. If you have extra time, please come stop by.
