ATL...




Are you wondering were have I been? Well, let me tell you:
I've been attending the Art Forum at SCAD-Atlanta (the Atlanta campus of the Savannah College of Art and Design)... and having the bestest time while at it... sharing my illustration world with some fabulously talented students.
Despite the snow and the fact that Jon Foster's (the other artist speaker) flight got cancelled, everything went fantastically.
Well... I didn't get to review the portfolios on the third day (thank you Mr. Snow)... but I did get to spend some time with one of my favorite illustrators - Mike Lowery, hear  Bill Mayer talk about his experiences as an illustrator and share my working process with a gifted group.
Many thanks go to Rick Lovell (Illustration Program Coordinator), Renee Rivas and Pat Bolling for taking such fabulous care of me:)

I'm envying those students! :)
You should organize something similar in Venice! That would be good for me! :D
