This week, we decided to put aside the Friday Top 5 to concentrate on a once-in-a-year event. From May 8th to May 19th, New York will be hosting events all over the city to celebrate design! A great occasion to discover new artists and have a lot of fun! It was hard to pick only ten events among the hundreds others, but we did it. Tell us your adventures with the hashtag: #lifeinsketchxdesign!
