CreativeMornings with Oliver Jeffers

Hooray for another CreativeMorning, on April 23, 2010, with brilliantly talented Illustrator Oliver Jeffers.

My readers know how much I love Oliver Jeffers. There’s not an evening that goes by at casa swissmiss where we don’t read Ella one of his books. Originally from Ireland, Oliver now lives and works in Brooklyn, just a few blocks from casa swissmiss. His talent is humbling. From figurative painting and installation, to illustration and picture-book making, Oliver Jeffers’ work has been exhibited around the globe.

This month’s CreativeMornings will be generously hosted by Harper Collins.

Interested in attending? R.S.V.P will open up on today at noon EST. Make sure to be ready to sign up as we tend to fill up within minutes:

CreativeMornings start at 8.30am, end at 10am and are FREE of charge. Also, if you did r.s.v.p’d but can no longer make it, please do send us a note as we usually have a waiting list.


Breakfast will be generously sponsored by MailChimp and Family Documentary Photos:

MailChimp is a fantastic service that makes it easy to send email newsletters to your customers, manage your subscriber lists, and track campaign performance. A big yay-hooray to the team over at MailChimp!

Rather than simply photograph what your family looks like at a specific minute in a photo studio, the Dumbo-based Dads of Family Documentary Photos will spend a day photographing what this moment of time actually feels like and is like.

Be the first to know when r.s.v.p’s open up, follow CreativeMornings on twitter!
