- Handsome Frank & Friends: Making your way in illustration
What do you want to know about a career in illustration? We are opening the session up to a panel of illustrators Dario Fisher, Abi Stevens and Rich Gemmell.
On the panel we also have Jon Cockley (co-founder) from Handsome Frank Illustration Agency who work with many of the best illustrators and biggest clients around the world. We will be asking them how an illustration agent works with you to build your profile and connect you to some of the biggest brands.
We really want everybody to be a part of this event, think of a question that will help you and others understand illustration in the digital world.
