Ray Ban Soho NYC store, IPCNY and more!

I love winter! but I love summer more maybe because it’s hot and I drew three big beach scenes so far for various clients!  I’ve been wearing Ray Ban sunglasses all my life, and couldn’t enjoy more when I created this fun Justin + Erika project! Thanks to AD Bastien + Marjorie and Publicis Paris agency!

Ray Ban’s fabulous hub in Soho at 116 Wooster st. was finally opened in the middle of November 2015, so if you were in New York area, don’t miss to wander throughout Ray-Ban’s hub! ( and check out my work there too!)

Another news, My Urban Jungle Yogini book was lucky enough to be included in IPCNY‘s Commedia: New Prints 2015/ Autumn! On view is Nov 19,2015 to Jan 16,2016, so after seeing my work at 116 Wooster st., make sure heading to Chelsea’s IPCNY gallery to see my new book with 3D glasses at 508 West 26th st. 5th fl.!

Before Summer goes…

Hello Fall!

I’m back from my long, but mostly work vacation in France, and got a new studio in the Upper East Side, New York. I’d lived seven out of ten years in the UES, and I missed this neighborhood so bad, so finally I’m back! And it feels soooooooo good! Hopefully better work and life will be created here? 🙂

So here’s a set of portraits for Billboard Magazine‘s August #26 ‘Fall music preview’ issue. I hope you figure out who’s who.

Many thanks to AD Patrick!

Thanks AD Tara!

And this photo I got from AD Len from Nautilus Magazine! I’m glad to see they were enjoying my book!

One copy of this books was at last week’s NY Art Book Fair at the MoMA PS1, and was on a Desert Island‘s table! And surprisingly, I heard from Gabe it was sold in 30 min!

I’m glad and wondering who bought my book so quick, so please let me know if you are the one! 🙂
