Highlights Draw With a Purpose Workshop

Our HQ for the weekend

Highlights- perhaps the greatest company on Earth- brought a bunch of their artists out for a retreat in their rural cabins in the Pennsylvania woods, all expenses paid this past weekend. This was my second time out there. Art Directors and Editors looking at our work, a workshop on hiding pictures, amazing food, live music, booze everywhere, skunks, snakes (saw ‘em both!), hiking, and just great people. I can’t put into words how amazing the weekend was, so I’ll let MAD Magazine and Highlights contributor Rich Powell do it.
