Hello Goodbye

illustration by Henning Wagenbreth

I'm leaving tomorrow for a gathering of illustrators in New York. If my plane really does land anywhere near 9 o'clock, I'm going to jump in a cab and go straight to an opening of this guy's work (Henning Wagenbreth).

It never fails: I'm always a little apprehensive when I go to New York. But I'm confident that Stray G, my events coordinator from Tennessee, will take me in tow. She's already arranged for tickets to at least 17 extracurricular activities. Plus, she's letting me stay in her swank NY hotel room. (Whenever she comes to San Francisco, she introduces me to all kinds of new things about my own city that I never knew existed.)
