The Art Of Paul Hoppe Opening Reception

Last week was the great opening reception of my big 10 year retrospective at the German Consulate General in New York.

With Dr. Jakob von Wagner, Chief of Cultural Affairs at the Consulate General
I was honored to be able to exhibit my work at such a prestigious space and thrilled that so many people came out for the occasion. Friends, colleagues, clients, collaborators… and many other people who had heard about the show.

It was especially nice to have my mother with me for the occasion, who had just flown in all the way from Germany.

If you'd like to see more photos, I'll be slowly adding some to this Facebook Album.

The show is still up till November 29th, open on weekdays, 9-5.30pm, 871 United Nations Plaza.

Thanks again to everybody who came out, and especially to Dr. Jakob von Wagner and Dr René Rubbeling.
With Whitney Sherman, Professor at MICA, and her husband (left) and my mother.

Q & A with DART / American Illustration

Design Arts Daily (DART), the American Illustration blog and newsletter, has done an online interview with me. From the very kind intro:

Paul Hoppe, an illustrator and comics artist, has been a friend of DART since his work first appeared in AI26. At the New York City comics fairs, he acts as a semaphore: a tall fellow, he is also one of a few participants who has figured out how to be visible in a crowded hall—often standing alongside his even taller Rabid Rabbit vertical banner. Next week, a 10-year survey of Paul’s work will be seen in an exhibition at the German Consulate in New York. […]

Many thanks to Editor-In-Chief Peggy Roalf for the kind words and the nice interview!
