DWI: Do It With Illustration

DWI: Do It With Illustration Under the Influence with Today's Most Arresting Illustrators

Come and meet six of the brightest illustrators working today. Hear how they create the images that inform, seduce and enlighten us on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. From cover portraits of President Obama to adjusting to life in the suburbs to packaging for sexual lubricant creams (!) to the pitfalls of job-hunting--get an inside view on how these artists tackle a broad range of topics and their perspectives (illustratively speaking), on politics, work, life and love.

Mark Heflin, Director of American Illustration and American Photography will moderate the discussion and Q&A with illustrators: Peter Arkle, Juliette Borda, Christopher Silas Neal, Tim O'Brien, Katherine Streeter and Jillian Tamaki.

And don't miss the pre-show screening of the American Illustration 25th Anniversary Timeline movie at 6:45PM where 25 illustrators were each asked to illustrate one year in AI's 25 year publishing history. It's a look back at events that shaped our lives and a quarter-century overview of illustration by 25 of the industry's superstars.

    I am an illustrator in Florida and unable to attend. Will you post any highlights or notes/information online about the event?
