The illustration industry has taken many unexpected twists and turns over the last decade. With the introduction of new technologies, a transition of opportunity and a shift in the way business is conducted, we've cherry picked the best in the industry to address the the current state of illustration.
In The Know is designed to provide a platform for thought-provoking discussion and address how to combat changes within the industry. Join in on the discussion and be In The Know. This event runs 10am - 4pm.
To kick off the day Mitch Vane will speak of her experience as an illustrator with her long career providing a wealth of knowledge. She will explore the changes she's witnessed in the industry, how she's adapted to the changes and where she thinks illustration is headed.
The afternoon will lead with a panel of industry professionals who commission illustrators. The panel will discuss budget/pricing for illustration, where the industry is headed, what's 'in' in illustration right now, what's over- saturated and what's in demand.
To address the flip side of the coin, a panel of professional illustrators from a range of different disciplines will discuss budget/pricing for illustration, where the industry is headed and which areas of illustration offer consistent commissions.
Learned a lot about the industry and it was an enjoyable event.
Was a very important event to go to, I learnt that my business module is on track and felt encourage to continue as I'm practicing. I was surprised to learn that Agents only manage your jobs , they don't exactly source new work for you and you don't necessarily need one if you're proactively organised. My impression of agents was very embellished were I thought if you scored an agent, work would swarm in and you become super rich. ha ha.
Great setup, guest speaker was tilling as we're the panels for the q&a. Thoroughly enjoyed the day, just a shame there was an hour delay in starting.
