Chaotic first week of school has just finished, and finally have a little bit of time to update my site…

This school year, I am teaching two classes at SVA including Senior Portfolio Class I am teaching for the first time. I am co-teaching with the one and only Thomas Woodruff: my former instructor/MFA thesis advisor and chair of Illustration and Cartooning Dept. at SVA. He was one of the best instructors I have ever had as a student. Excited, and a bit nervous!
