11 October, 6:30 to 8:30pm.
Join AOI’s Lou Bones with illustrators Steve McCarthy, The Project Twins and Rothco AD Peter Farry discussing the challenges of sustaining a successful career in illustration, pursuing your personal work and expanding your career through diverse routes. Not just pens for hire, the speakers draw on real examples of working with great clients and share their experiences of how they have turned their personal work into commercially viable projects. We’ll also cover practical tips on understanding the commissioners journey, collaborating with Art Directors, learning to communicate not only with the client but also their audience, harnessing the power of your own audience and the importance of self-promotion before opening up a Q+A session.
