Marshall Arisman will moderate a panel on Illustration featuring Nathan Fox, Sam Weber, Eddie Guy, and Yuko Shimizu. The official write-up reads:
For over five decades illustrators have produced a single image to illuminate an author’s text. Illustration is changing. What are illustrators today saying through their work? Are illustrators making a contribution that other art forms do not? Is illustration relevant? Can illustration be a vehicle for personal vision? Join us for a stimulating evening of words and pictures that explore the possibilities of an illustrator becoming an author of their own work.
