Now that I have righteously offended illustrators I admire (Aaron Meshon sent me a cheeky email about my heinous drawings and the way they falsely depict his chin – singular. It was awesome. Is this the way you make contacts? Who shall I offend next? How about art directors!) I will go on to post some of the photos from my New York trip to the Nuts & Bolts conference.
How about our trip to the Pencil Factory in Brooklyn? The Pencil Factory, if you didn’t know, is this amazing warehouse that’s been converted to gorgeous studios that house some really awesome young illustrators and designers. By and large they were all awesome, chilled out, stylish and rode bicycles.
And my pictures are by and large, blurry. Alas.
In case my fangirl ranting didn’t tip you off, Sam Webber is an amazing painter whose website you can see HERE if you don’t believe me. There are a lot of pictures of this due to it’s obvious merit and some issues with the memory card that prevented much further picture taking. But we’re not done yet! Oh, no!
That’s me. And my friend Javier Ortiz.
We walked around a lot and ate some awesome food.
Really though, I am looking forward to my next potential trip to NY where I will try to beat art directors about the face and neck with a portfolio of some kind. Which could open some doors…
