The Society of IllustratorsEditorial and Book show will open on March 3 (Fri) . Opening party is between 5:30 and 8PM at Museum of American Illustration at 128 East 63rd Street. I will have four pieces in this show including this image I did for PLAYBOY that had received Gold Medal. The show will be up for about a month.My e-mail server was down between Feb. 19 and 20. I have lost most of the incoming messages during those two days. If you were expecting to hear back from me and not receiving reply, I may not have gotten it. Please send me your message again. Thank you!

Spy Magazine
Some new press…Thank you Computer Arts China (right) for doing a nice 6 page feature on my work in their December 2005 issue. Thank you Sue!

Another thanks goes to The Spy Magazine of Cadiz, Spain(far right) for their nice 5 page feature article on my work in their January-February 2006 issue. Thank you Arantxa!

There is also an interview article in Cultura Creativa 1492 (November 2005), an advertising magazine in Argentine, regarding “Target and New York” advertising campaign of past summer.

When I have a bit more time to rework on my web site, I am planning on making a “press page” to put all these articles and interviews in one place. I have been receiving so many e-mails from new illustrators and art students asking questions. A lot of them are on same topics. As my work gets busier and busier, it gets harder and harder to write back. Hope I can build a page to help answer a lot of their questions.
