Mike Perry is a designer and artist, best known for his work with American Outfitters. He is an avid creator of zines and his style has greatly influenced the graphics community. His presentation was more of a show-and-tell than anything. When it came to giving advice and answering audience questions, he was amusing, but not very helpful. When asked by a designer she could do to become inspired, he actually recommended she smoke pot. In a more serious tone, he did point out that a lot of his success has come from hard work and his constant need to keep actively creating stuff. If you have time, check out his web site.
