ICON8,Portland, the Illustration Conference 2014 I July 2014 I went to the international illustration conference, ICON8, in Portland, Oregon together with a group of Danish illustrators and cartoonists. We attended the "roadshow" Thursday evening, where everybody could show their work. I made fast caricatures (1-2 minutes) of the people who passed our "booth" with books, magazines, postcards and after a while also my drawings hanging from a clothes line with clamps. It was a very interesting conference with a lot of the best illustrators talking about and showing their work (on a huge screen.) It was a great experience and we met a lot of nice people, among other the political cartoonists Joe Sacco and Matt Bors and we visited Steve Lieber in the studio he shares with 24 other cartoonists.
