ICON, or The Illustration Conference, is a non-profit organization of illustrators, established in 1998 to promote the use of illustration in all media. Every two years it brings together illustrators to discuss issues, hear inspiring guest speakers and take part in workshops. ICON5 will be held July 2-5, 2008 in New York City at the Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Registration for ICON5 is now open and can be done online, by fax, or via mail. More info here.
And 3x3 Magazine, a Gold Sponsor of this year's Illustration Conference, is putting together an illustrated guide for conference goers, with tips on good eats close by as well as near galleries, museums, and other illustrator haunts.
