Save the date for my fashion illustration panel discussion at the Apple Store Covent Garden on Thursday 14th July. I will be talking to illustrators Gill Button and (newly graduated) Manjit Thapp, as well as fashion features editor of AnOther Magazine, Olivia Singer.
Social media is giving rise to a new visibility for illustrators as brands tap into the playful power of brush strokes and hand rendered work. Designers and publications are discovering and promoting artists on social media, while some illustrators are using the platforms as a shop window to sell work directly to the public, whether that’s prints or stickers. We’ll discuss the changes and challenges, devices and apps and learn how best to leverage social media for illustrators.
