2nd Annual Nuts & Bolts Conference

Our second annual Nuts & Bolts Conference to be held at the Society of Illustrators on July 8-9. We had a great response from last year’s event—100-percent said they’d recommend the conference—which is especially gratifying since it was our first conference. This year we’ve added a series of workshops and our speakers will be even more focussed on giving the audience the tools they need to build a successful illustration career.

We’ve brought back a few of the speakers from last year and added a few more like Yuko Shimizu, Martin Wittforth and Matt Rota who will join Marcos Chin, Paul Hoppe and Aaron Meshon on Saturday. On Friday, Kate Kelly from Morgan-Gaynin will discuss artist reps, attorney Sheryear Sardar will discuss the specifics of setting up a business and I’ll talk about the Dos & Dont’s of entering the illustration field. Couple that with workshops by Melanie Reim, Justin Gabbard and Katherine Streeter, museum and studio tours and two social events it promises to be an exciting two days of facts and fun.

Early registration begins May 5th, if you’d like to be on our mailing list just contact us at, Facebook or Twitter. Complete details will be coming next week on our new Nuts & Bolts website. The event is for soon-to-be graduates and recent graduates only. Sitting is limited.
