On Saturday May 12, I took part in Illustrators Australia first Spotlight seminar at the beautiful NMIT Fairfield Campus, along with fascinating medical illustrator Levent Efe, fashion Illustrator Angie Rehe (who very kindly swapped times so I could get to a family event), Kate Nolan and her exquisite sculptures, jewellery and natural history drawings, and primo editorial illustrator Jim Tsinganos.
Ran through a full gamut of work for an hour or so, picture book work, editorial and commercial projects covering 20 years, plenty of changes and some recurring themes.
Great to see some familiar faces, as well as many new ones!
Roger Harvey snapped the attached photo and sent it through. Shades of Colonel Kurtz, '...the horror... the horror...' but am very glad the moment didn't end the same way.
Many thanks to Jody Pratt, Illustrators Australia and to hosts NMIT for looking after us all so well!
More Spotlight seminars will follow in the coming months.
