ICon 5

Illustrators Conference 5 has announced their city and dates. Hooray for New York, New York and the fact that I won’t have to travel! For thems that does have to travel, they claim room rates of $180.00 a night. (Although they aren't saying where. Hmmmm.) The website is not up yet but you can check out Icon 4’s website to see the kind of event this will be.

Yikes, that's a *third* "Icon" (Iowa, Long Island, and now this). All of them get good reports from various sources, too.

What’s funny -- This is a mainstream convention. When they announced the abbreviation "Icon" everyone in the mainstream illo community thought it was brilliant, just brilliant, I say! All I did was roll my eyes, remembering that me and my mullet went to Icon 3 on Long Island 25 years ago.

Gah!! This is the first I've heard of ICons, yet there was one in San Francisco just two years ago... not twenty minutes from where I live.

Ah Well, I've been planning a New York trip for the fall, so maybe I'll just push it back to next July. :) Pleeeeeaase tell me it's not half as chaotic as Comic-Con.

Hi Mike - Much more mellow than ComicCon. It’s not at all consumer based. It’s really an issues convention for and by illustrators -- how the industry is going, trends, etc. It started with Brad Holland and the IPA a number of years ago. At that point it was a bit more hardcore in information and advocacy. Now it’s part issues part party. Like any other convention, there are people that find in invaluable and others that don’t think it’s worth the hype. I’ve only gone once, when it was in Philly. I thought it was a great to a chance to talk to all the artists but I found the actual panel discussions a little thin. Being in NY, though, they should have access to some pretty awesome speakers. I’m looking forward to seeing how it comes together.
