Complete conference information
Conference faculty

So far, plans are for illustrators to bring their portfolios to set out for conference attendees to view. We'll confirm details as we get them.

For an additional fee, you can also have your portfolio critiqued privately by a member of the conference faculty. Also included Saturday afternoon: First Looks. In an open panel discussion, conference faculty will offer their responses to a limited number of illustrations sent in by conference attendees. Details about critiques and First Looks can be found here.

Plans are still being solidified for shared transportation to and from the conference.
