What we're about

Are you an illustrator? Do you sometimes miss the community of folks you had in art school? Do you wish you had more of an illustration-focused artistic community, specifically on the North side of Chicago? Welcome to Illustration Buddies!

As happy as I am that I'm not in college anymore, I've found myself missing the nights in project rooms where I could just work alongside my peers and chat about our projects and our goals (and also gossip a little bit). Illustration Buddies aims to recreate those spaces, and bring together people who love to make art around other people.

Each week we get together at a nearby library and work on our current projects. This is a space to chat, share what you're working on, and have a dedicated space to work on your projects each week.

This group is aimed at folks early in their illustration career, as well as avid hobbyists. Whether you're a children's book illustrator, selling sticker sheets on Etsy, or just want time and space to work on your Zine, Illustration Buddies is the group for you.

Keep an eye out for upcoming illustration hangs! This is a weekly group, though some weekends may be skipped due to holidays or scheduling conflicts. It's also free to attend, since libraries are cool and let you go there for free.

I hope to see you there!
