Last weekend I attended ICON7, the illustration conference that took place in Providence, Rhode Island. There is so much information to process that I still feel difficulty in putting everything into words. I felt very inspired by the stories told, specially the case of Idiot´s Books (check them out, they were gracious and funny, informative and inspiring). And Matt Groening and Lynda Barry´s talk was probably one of the best hours of live entertainment I have had in a very long time.
In just a few days, I met so many of the voices I have heard in podcasts like “Escape from illustration Island” and “Your dreams my nightmares”, by Thomas James and Sam Weber, respectively. I put faces on names, met new people and – most important – never had to explain what my job is (What? You draw pictures for a living?).
Now, I´m ready to get back to work!
Ana! So nice meeting you! Lovely sketches from the conference.
Thank you, Mike! Lovely meeting you too. Let me know if you wish to come visit Panama.
