All I Want to do is Make Cute Things - Julia Kuo

Julia gave this talk at Weapons of Mass Creation Fest 2012 in Cleveland, OH.

"I became an illustrator just so I could draw whatever I wanted, but this path has taken me down a few surprising turns. I'll talk about starting a stationery company, illustrating for the New York Times, and my "100 Days in Cleveland" blog (which recently became the book New to Cleveland)."
