I'm just back from a glorious three weeks in the Dominican Republic, my home away from home. I had a great class and then, went on to teach a workshop at the Urban Sketchers Symposium, held this year in Santo Domingo. It was not as hot as NY, but hot in other ways! I was obsessed with the domino players. WOW! did they ever have their rhythm down and were hot with the passion of the game. It was an illustrator's delight!
