On April 1 I will have the privilege of talking about humor ( this is not an April Fool’s joke). The Palo Alto institute is presenting ” Secrets to a Funnier You” as part of their T3 series of talks symposia and lectures.

korea 7As promised, I am posting some photos from my recent exhibition at the annual SICAF (Seoul International Comics and Animation Festival). SICAF gets tens of thousands of visitors to its 5 day event each July. I was invited to be a special guest artist at this year’s festival.
