I see Jerome Lu a few times a year and he's a fan of all sorts. I tried to mimic his face and it took some effort. He has pointy eyebrows and a new born child waiting for him at home. I found out he drove back right after DesignerCon ended to make it home.
Although I saw many more than the folks I photographed in the two days, I saw that so many more showed up and I didn't see them. I wish I did.
Jacky Jiang will have a solo exhibition at GR2 in february. This dude is talented. He's autokite on Instagram.
