It's rare that we have the opportunity to spend time with so many of the group all at once. But since some of us were in NY for the American Illustration party, and others live right here, we were able to have a nice little group gathering at Esperanto in the East Village. It was the perfect end to a productive week in NY!
(L-R) Cathie Bleck, Jennifer Vaughn, Alex Dethier, Martha Rich,
Rachel Salomon, Kim Rosen, SooJin & Chris Buzelli, and Elliott Golden.
The American Illustration party was last night, and it was great to be there and reconnect with some of our artists and friends. Unfortunately, the place was so packed that we weren't able to find all the people we wanted to see, but we're in NY for the weekend so maybe we can track down some of the ones we missed last night. Already looking forward to next year's party!
Craig will be having a solo show at the Last Rites Gallery in New York from December 5th until the 27th... and although we are so excited about the big event, we are bummed to be missing it by only a couple of weeks (we'll be there mid-November)!
Nonetheless, if you are around, make sure not to miss it and tell us what we missed!
12/5 - 12/27 @ 511 W. 33rd St
