That’s me, wearing my Superman cape, lecturing on “Life, Art & Comic Book Art" inside the Rockwell Gallery on the opening night of my exhibition, Thursday, October 22. Thanx to Allan Wahler of A2A Studio Solutions in Stamford for the beautiful prints, Rockwell’s Jay Cimbak and Susn Perreca for their wonderful hosting, and Janine of Da Pietro’s, Westport’s greatest Italian restaurant, for the incredible catering! A great night was had by all!
