I'm so pumped right now!
Tomorrow I'm going to get to meet the lovely and talented Yuko Shimizu!!
And if you don't know who she is then please familiarize yourself >>>yukoart.com/
The Illustration Guild at my school will be playing host to her this weekend. We almost thought we wouldn't be able to get a hold of her, but after settling some issues, it worked out, and now she's actually going to be here! And I'm such a spazz about big time illustrators! (But I will handle myself professionally in her presence)
Anyway, she'll be doing a demo, a critique, a workshop, and a lecture (we're keeping her busy) throughout tomorrow and Friday, and then Saturday I have to man a table at an arts festival for kids. Of which I might be doing all day since I can't get people in the guild to sign-up for nothing. Needless to say, I don't think I'll have much time for fun art
But it'll be okay.
Meeting a prolific artist who's a big name in the industry is all completely worth not getting any sleep Sunday night as I finish homework (not sarcasm).
I'll drop by when I can,
PS: If there happens to be anyone out there who's in the N.C. area, not too far from Greenville, and you're interested in coming to see Yuko speak, then send me a note for details. Her lecture is at 5pm Friday, and it is open to the public.
