    are they gonna stick him down in the basement or something? Man, schedule permitting, I really want to see this. I missed him last time I had the chance to see him speak and I really wish I hadn't.

    I assume he'll be in the ground floor gallery. I'm not setting this up, but I'll ask the guy who is.

    I just bought 2 tickets myself. Looking forward to it.

    Crap! I forgot that it was during the baord meeting. Well, I think I'll skip the board meeting.

    I hear the event is sold out so, if anyone was planning on buying tickets at the door, best to call ahead.

    Aaaaahh....

    You people from New York are so lucky to have this Illustrator Society, organising such events...
    You american students are so lucky to have these guys coming in your class...

    In France, illustrators are much more isolated, and many schools teach like they're far away from the real life, looking at successful artists with a suspicious eye.

    But, hey ! It could be changed, and it gives me the idea that I could organize such lectures or demos for my students during the year. Amazing french artists may accept the invitation, so why not.

    Now you're talking! Most people are honored to be asked. These events have really been very easy to do. Keep us posted if you do organize one.

    Great workshop. I'm really looking forward to Art Out Loud in November.
    I learned tons and it was really inspiring. Thank you :.
