The Society of Illustrators 58th annual exhibition is up in New York, and I was lucky to land one of my experimental collages in the damn thing.
There I was, in a room full of illustrators and art directors, and I spent all my time schmoozing my wife, savoring a second plate of meatballs. Actually, it was exactly what I wanted to be doing, sharing a bit of success with my favorite person and biggest supporter. I'll bring an empty dance card next year and look forward to rubbing as many elbows as possible.
The experience was inspiring and humbling, not only because of the amazing art and artists represented, but also for the building. It was not lost on me that my piece was hanging directly across the room from NC Wyeth's "Black Arrow". Yeesh!
