The Amazing Cathie Bleck

I met with Cathie Bleck today to help her take down her incredible show. In case you missed it, it will be going up again at 4 Times Square in August. I contacted Cathie while working on my thesis, in which her work played an integral role. She's been my favorite illustrator since I started using scratchboard, so getting to know her has been such a treat. On top of that, she's one of the kindest, most generous people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Her gorgeous scratchboards are an extra layer of icing on the cake. It was great to spend the day with her, and her advice and encouragment was completely invaluable.
