Believe it or not, out of five attempts, this is the best photo I could get of my teacher and I. I guess we're not very photogenic.
Yesterday my professor Angela Dominguez released her newest book, "Let's Go, Hugo!" This is the first book that she has both written and illustrated. Many of her students showed up to the book release party at Books Inc in San Francisco to get our copies signed. Because many of us saw the book while it was still in black-and-white-sketches, we were excited to see the final product. As my friend Shirong said, it's like Angela just had a baby! A book baby!
I like "Let's Go, Hugo!" because it is about facing your fears. It's about how making excuses to hide your fears will eventually affect your relationships. But all of these heavy-sounding themes are presented in a charming style with cute bird characters and a Parisian setting. Go read it now.
