News-Zero2Illo UK Illustration Conference

Norm and I met each other through a Zero2Illo Portfolio Project. It was an earlier form of the website that focused on creating relevant work for your portfolio. The site has evolved since then and now is offering their first conference in the UK for up and coming Illustrators looking to find work that’s not as easy to come by as it used to be.

Norm and I are both stateside, though on opposite sides of the country, so we won’t be partaking of the festivities. However, here is the information for all of you who may be interested in attending!

Congrats to Zero2Illo for this landmark achievement! If you are able to go, please take pictures and come back and share your experience with us here! There are a limited number of tickets so get yours ASAP!!!

zero2illo LIVE UK 2012

Saturday, 10 November 2012 from 10:00 to 17:00 (GMT)

Nottingham, United Kingdom


We are excited to be organizing and hosting the first zero2illo LIVE UK event on November 10th this year in Nottingham – and what we hope is the first of many!

The theme for this year is “Opportunities and Inspiration” – we want to explore just how many opportunities still exist for illustrators to earn a living, despite the erosion of and changes in the more traditional industries in which illustration has previously had a strong foothold. You can see the panels below – alongside some of the confirmed panelists and speakers.

We have deliberately chosen a venue outside of London – in the middle of the country – to make it as accessible and affordable to as many illustrators as possible around the country. Please do spread the word to your creative colleagues about this – it is going to be great.

For full details of the event including more information about our speakers, please visit the website.
