Illustration conference in NYC
During the Fourth of July weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Illustration Conference ICON at the historic Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. Eight of my students from CCS got a chance to tag along and work as volunteers and see it all. Needless to say it was a whirlwind weekend. Some of them had never been to New York City. On top of meeting and hearing some of the luminaries in the Illustration world, we went to North America's oldest pizzeria in Lombardi's, saw the Fourth of July fireworks from afar, strolled through Chinatown, Time Square, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Station, the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Museum, and a host of other New York landmarks. And when they weren't exploring, they worked extremely hard and I couldn't be more proud of them.
