So here we go:
Day 4 - Wednesday - Comics day - Ok, fine. The day wasn't all about comics. First, we dropped by Lotta Jansdotter's studio/shop where she talked to us about patterns, textiles, and licensing. It was our fist time taking the subway to Brooklyn.
|Look at the neat tile hats decorating some subway stations!|
|Apparently Brooklyn is very patriotic when it comes to graffiti|
|After meeting a pair of awesome illustrators based in Brooklyn we traveled back to Manhattan to learn a bit about the comic industry at DC comics|
|In their elevator hallway they have an amazing wall with all their characters. We all took turns posing next to them.|
After DC we had a meeting with Archaia comics where we learned about more the indie comics and copyright. And after that my friends and I went to see "Pippin" on Broadway:
Day 5 - Thursday - Back to Brooklyn - We went back to Brooklyn to some very seasoned art directors and children's books illustrators.
|After our official activities were done for the day - we walked the Brooklyn Bridge|
|The closest we ever got to the Statue of Liberty|
Day 6 - Friday - Books, Bread and Brisk art. On this last official excursion day we went to Penguin books and then the Society of Illustrators.
|Bookshelf at Penguin Books|
|Best book on that shelf. I haven't read it yet, but I'm certain it's solid gold.|
|Just arrived at the Society of Illustrators for a luncheon|
|Norman Rockwell’s 'Dover Coach' at the SOI|
|SOI library fireplace.|
|And here's our merry band of misfits on this NY adventure|
Till next Tuesday!
