If there is ever a night for illustrators to be hipsters, it's at the annual American Illustration party. It was great to catch up with Tim O'Brien, Chris and Soojin Buzelli, the whole Solomon staff, and others. I even got to shake hands with Seymour Chwast. I think the best part, however, was seeing a band of recent SVA grads run over and introduce themselves. They were super excited to be among so many great illustrators and have a chance to show off their promotional cards. I know I did not have half the the poise these guys had when I was just out of school...or even now, come to think of it.
