The Illustration Conference, NYC
We've just done ICON5 in new York. Taking place every two years, and sponsored by the likes of Adobe, Graphic Artists' Guild, Luerzer's Archive, Directory of Illustration and The Alternative Pick, The Illustration Conference is something that only happens in the US and only every two or three years.
Here's the official blurb about it, from Whitney, the lovely President who beamed her way through the conference:
"As illustrators, we don’t go to an office everyday, so ICON5 is a great opportunity to be around people who do what we do, to talk about trends and issues and to get re-inspired. ICON continues to gather the industry's best and brightest talent to present and talk about their work, their business, their lives, and their passion for illustration.'"
Well, I'm happy to say that as good as that sounds, it was actually much more interesting than that! See photos and a fulsome report on the Association of Illustrators' news page.
