Back from the whirlwind of ICON6 in Pasadena! The entire conference was an incredible experience and well worth the travel. It was well organized, thoughtful, informative, and an excellent forum to connect with other artists and art directors and feel part of a strong community. I met some really wonderful artists and was so inspired by everyone's talent.
Above are photos of my table at the Roadshow, a forum where 100 selected artists showed their wares to invited art directors and buyers from all industries. You can see a few of the children's books I've illustrated, some postcards, my portfolio, and my animated short Elegy screening on my brother's laptop. (Thanks bro!) My good friend and wonderful talent Julia Lundman also had a table there.
All in all, it was an extremely rewarding experience and I'm convinced I should be attending all future ICONS! Many thanks to all involved with the organizing, it really was a blast. And meeting featured guest Todd Oldham was a treat and insanely inspiring!
