This was one of my favorite moments from last month’s NCS Reuben Weekend. Photographer and author of The Artist Within Greg Preston set up this awesome photoshoot of the attending MAD artists and writers (plus a couple of gorgeous models) in a 60’s MAD MEN setting. Of course, this is what it always looks like when the Usual Gang of Idiots gets together. I still pinch myself that I am actually considered a part of that group of legends. You can read about the photoshoot on the Sampsel Preston Photography website.

Rest assured, my personal print of the above, signed by all, is currently getting a real frame job and will be prominently displayed in the studio.
