Warsaw, Poland
Just got back from Warsaw. It was an amazing trip. Stayed with Agata Nowicka, an illustrator / comic artist who is responsible for new trend of illustration in Poland, who is also the editor in chief of Exklusiv Magazine (they featured my work a while back), and Poland’s most famous single mother. She sure is a superwoman. Thank you for an amazing time.

I also met wonderful Zuzanna Krajewska, the busiest commercial photographer in Warsaw. She is showing her personal work at Contemporary Art Center.

When you are in Warsaw, make sure to check out their amazing Poster Museum!!
