In 2018, I spoke at ICON10 The Illustration Conference on the subject The Sketchbook: Let’s Connect in Detroit Michigan. I was honored to present with educators from the U.S., Canada, The United Kingdom, and Israel.
“In the summer of 2017, I traveled to China with my family. While there I documented our journey and experiences in my sketchbook. The sketchbook proved helpful in communicating without speaking the verbal language but using a common visual language. The paper expands on this idea and explores the question of why we draw and how we use it to communicate.”
What is ICON?
“ICON brings together top illustrators, designers, educators, representatives, and art buyers to explore the future of illustration. Since 1999, we have produced conferences in Santa Fe, Philadelphia, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Providence, Portland, Austin, and Detroit.
ICON is committed to providing a diverse forum for an ongoing dialogue that serves the illustration, design, publishing, advertising, and academic communities.” -ICON
