We have lovely Wendi Koontz as a studio-mate for six weeks while Katie is away becoming a big star (?) in the land of rum and cigar.

Big “Thank you!” goes to two guest speakers for my class: SooJin Buzelli of PLANSPONSOR, as always for giving great tips and encouraging students, Max Bode for being a great example for someone so young and so focused both in art direction and illustration.
