teaching in Venice, new school year, and Warsaw next!

Happy September. Hope you had a nice summer. Mine came and went, so quickly. But yes, it was nice.
I just got back from teaching 6 day illustration workshop in Venice, Italy. 13 lovely participants from all over the world: Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Russia, Costa Rica, Brazil, US and Canada. We worked a lot, chatted a lot, ate a lot, exchanged our cultures and backgrounds, and most importantly we had LOTS OF FUN!

As soon as I got back, new school year has started at School of Visual Arts, where I have been teaching for last 9 years. Welcome students, we will work a lot and have a lot of fun as well.
For those who are in Poland, my next destination is Warsaw in mid October. So excited. More details will be posted soon.
