Criterion Designs event at Society of Illustrators

Known for their beautifully designed special edition DVDs and blu-rays, Criterion Collection just came out with a coffee table book of their original package illustrations.
To celebrate the release of Criterion Designs, Society of Illustrators in New York will be hosting an event on December 3, 2014. With Eric Skillman, art director of  Criterion Collection, as the host, there will be a panel of 6 contributing artists (Greg Manchess, David Plunkert, Leanne Shapton, Adrian Tomine, Ron Winberly and myself) discussing our experiences.

There will be a book signing, followed by reception at Society of Illustrator’s famous bar upstairs.
Admission is $15 for non members, $10 for members, and $7 for seniors and students with valid ID. Please read more and reserve your tickets here

Looking forward to seeing you on December 2.
