My new book Living with Yuko Shimizu has finally hit the Stateside after a bit of a delay. So, we are having a signing and talk event here in NY. Japanese bookstore Books Kinokuniya of Midtown Manhattan is kind enough to host the event.

Living with Yuko Shimizu (published by ROADS Publishing of Ireland, not written by my dog Bruiser) is a collection of carefully selected 32 images which are printed on thick and sturdy paper. Each image can be torn out from the book and can be turned into art to hang on your wall.

The book is dedicated to friend and art director SooJin Buzelli, because half of the 32 images in the book was initially created for various magazines she art directs. So, for this event, I asked SooJin to have a talk in front of audience about illustrations, art directions, etc, etc.  I hope this event would be fun for not just those who are interested in my work or my book, but also for those who are interested in broader field of illustration and art direction.
