Tokion Creativity Now Conference 2008

"Fashion Fades Style Remains" Silk-Screened Poster by Katherine Bernhardt from Picture Box

Coming up this weekend at Cooper Union is the Tokion Creativity Now conference, which always proves quite engaging . Perhaps most topical to my interests is the second day of the Conference (Sunday May 18th), as it will include a fashion panel moderated by T magazine contributor Alex Hawgood and a panel on Gary Panter moderated by Brooklyn publisher Picture Box, which just published a book on the famed illustrator.

The excellent publisher has an actual brick and mortar storefront in Carroll Gardens--which makes it, in this day and age, all the more exceptional.
