No other magazine influences, teaches or studies the field of Illustration as wonderfully as 3x3 magazine does. I was honored to make a " self portrait" for one of their ad campaigns asking " Why I subscribe to 3x3 Magazine." I tried to make my double chins as realistic as possible. It was a personal piece for me, as I wanted to show how much I admire others in our field and also combine that with my せごいsummer memory of brave children jumping from a bridge into the cool river below in Gujo Hachiman, Japan. Thanks 3x3! Thanks Gujo Hachiman!
