Thanks OFFSET 2010 for the amazing time in Ireland :) This 3 day event, held in Dublin, Ireland, was full of inspiration and couldn't have been organized better. I met a few of my design/art heros ... David Carson, Gary Baseman, Tomer Hanuka, Martin Haake, Lance Wyman, and George Lois just to name a few. I stayed a few days extra to see more of Ireland and I have to say it's just as beautiful as people say it is. Thanks for everything.
The event took place at THE GRAND CANAL THEATRE
I should be nervous to speak right about now

I told my son the food in Ireland smiled at me when I told it I had a little boy ... which lead to a series of photos .. here is one of many smiling food shots

What gringo isn't impressed by castle-like architecture ?
Here is a great print from artist and illustrator Alé Mercado.
Alé invited us to his house in the country and we had the best time. We had British tea in a mansion in the country, he took us to some historical spots, cooked some delicious Indian food, showed us some books that inspire him, at night we checked out various constellations with his telescope and we were able to hang out with his two very fun and happy children.
Thanks Alé! We hope we can return the favor one day.
