A thank you note

This small drawing is to express my gratitude to all of you who made Ceramic Lounge’s book signing such a beautiful event. I was very happy to be around lovely people like you, and you made the evening a special one.

Now let me share with you my surprise of the month. After Pecha Kucha presentation last wednesday, I saw Ayman taking photos with his mobile phone. I asked if he could send them, and he clearly avoided giving me a clear answer. I thought alright, I hope my sister will have taken some pics at least to remember the event. This wednesday, I saw him filming again at Ceramic Lounge. This time I thought I will not ask him for the photos πŸ˜› And then yesterday, I see this post on his blog containing an INTEGRAL VIDEO OF PECHA KUCHA PRESENTATION, and a VIDEO OF BOOK SIGNING AT CERAMIC LOUNGE!

Ayman, I am SO glad that you documented those events with videos! Even an integral of the PK presentation!! Β This is really priceless. Thank you so much πŸ™‚

Et voilΓ , that’s the big secret behind my more-than-usual absence! I missed you so much, glad to be back posting and updating you! So the idea is that a book signing is planned on October 28th, 2009 at Ceramic Lounge, SaΓ―fi Village, starting 6 PM. You will also be able to paint your stress away with the special edition comics I’ve illustrated exclusively for Ceramic Lounge, that you can trace on ceramic items. You can also get mugs that I painted for you… Click here for the Facebook event page.

Here is the flier promoting the event. Hope to see you all there!! πŸ™‚ Have a beautiful day
