After going to Pictoplasma in Berlin in 2006, I had to attend the 2008 conference so close in NYC. Most of the events were held at NYU’s handsome Skirball Center. My favorite lecture was by Akinori Oishi (who goes by “Aki”). I asked if he’d consider doing an exhibition at SLU, so I’ll follow up with him via email in the weeks ahead.
Melissa and Carole helped out big-time collecting stickers on Thursday afternoon–115 in all! Not much political stuff yet, which surprised me. But a few gems, nonetheless. Check out my Flickr site for more images (coming soon!).
