The big news for me this year is that I will be hosting a panel and I will be be joined by none other then Wizards of the Coast's own Jon Schindehette! We are going to be talking all about GETTING SERIOUS in the industry! Topics include establishing a strong web presence, networking, setting goals, specialization within the industry, overcoming set backs, etiquette and good practices when handling yourself professionally online, branding, and monsters. For those attending and wanting to not miss out, our panel takes place at noon on Saturday 11/10 in Room 001. You can download the full Illuxcon V program HERE.
If that is not enough, I will be taking part in the Showcase event again this year on Friday 11/09 night from 8pm to midnight. Be sure to come by to see my new never before seen traditional paintings! I will also have plenty of prints, sketchbooks, original drawing, and much more available! It should be a fun time for sure.
If I am not enough of a draw for you, there will also be over 50 of the biggest name in fantasy illustration displaying their work, 2 days full of workshops, lectures, and panels, portfolio reviews with some of the most influential art directors in the industry, and 4 days of concentrated awesomeness! I hope to see you there!
That is all for another exciting week on the blog! See you back here next week for some of the usual fun and a whole lot of Illuxcon awesomeness! Until then...
