I will keep squeezing in travels in my schedule to come meet you! So join me when I am there.

In January 23, I will be in Germany for Embedded Art exhibit opening at Akademie der Künste in Berlin. (Hope it is won’t be as cold as it is now!)

In February, I will be coming to Washington University in St. Louis, thanks to the invite of my former studio-mate and super talented John Hendrix.

In March, I am scheduled to be in Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico thanks to the kind invitation from Amarillo Centro de Diseno. A show and lecture are scheduled. aspiring illustrators and students in Mexico, come come! Looking forward to meeting you there.

Also in March, I will be judging a children’s book illustration competition organized by Teatrio in Chioggia, Italy. They are still accepting applications. So, please apply your awesome works!
