My trip to Pasadena and the ICON6: part 3






The Illustration Conference was held at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena from the 14th. of July to the 17th. of July. It was great meeting colleagues, hearing about where the business might be going and just to get some inspiration. The workshops and speakers were great, but not everything applied to a small market like the danish. I did some sketches of the differnt speaker and people sitting in the audience...mainly to be able to focus on what was being said (I always have to do at least two things at the same time, or my mind starts to wander). Here is a list with names and links to some of the speaker I captured in my sketchbook:
Martha Rich, Illustrator and President of ICON6
Fernanda Cohen, Illustrator and Vice President of ICON6
Mark Heflin, Executive Director of ICON
Tim Biskup, Illustrator and Fine Art artist
Wayne White, Fine Art artist
Craig Elliot, Concept Designer
Bill Schwab, Character Designer
Kathy Altieri, ArtDirector for "How to train your Dragon" at DreamWorks
Yuko Shimizu, Illustrator
Brian Rea, Illustrator and instructor at Artcenter College of Design
Ian Gooding, Disney
Eli Horowitz, Editor at McSweeney's
Sammy Harkman, Editor at Kramers Ergot
and finally Poet Greg Pincus, who gave a workshop on Social Media.

Thanks for reading
Erik
