If You're in New York:
Or if you're going to be on Sept. 9-10, you might check out Semi-Permanent05 NYC (www.semipermanent.com). It's a two-day design conference where 12 speakers, representing the tops of their fields, gather to present their work and their views on design. This year, in addition to architects and graphic designers, the organizers have invited comic-book artist (and artistic genius, btw) Paul Pope to be one of the speakers. So, if you're a Paul Pope fan and you're in the area, you might check out the website and see what's what.
