Sometimes We Go to New York.

Last weekend I went up to NYC with some friends for the annual International Arts Movementconference.  It has become a family reunion of sorts, a time to reconnect with friends scattered around the world.  Also, it is a fantastic gathering of great lectures, top-notch performances, and meaningful interaction with artists.  Here are my sketchbook scans from the weekend:

Jacob Marshall, of the band Mae.

Dan Siedell

Kevin Gosa

Patrick Carmichael, who found my notebook on the train and returned it!
David Sacks

Also, illustrator extraordinaire and friend John Hendrix and I attended the opening of the Society of Illustrators 52 Advertising & Institutional exhibition.  It is always great to see original illustrations, and even better to meet artists I've looked up to for years!
The stairway, lined with original portraits of former Society presidents.
