Need Your Input on an SVS Illustrator Digital Summit
@LisaF thanks Lisa. I was also wondering, I keep getting email invited to “become a member” of SVS so I can join the live meetings. I haven’t gotten any of the invites to the critique arenas. I don’t want to miss this but, for some reason I’m only on the promo emails instead of the member ones. Do I need to change something in my email settings?
@Jake-Parker Armand Baltazar is amazing too and very responsive and open to sharing his process on Instagram.

@Jake-Parker Damn. If I'd been thinking I would have pitched Jeff Smith for the list.
Looking forward to seeing who comes out! Thanks for doing this.
@Pamela-Fraley We just used Zoom this past Sunday for our church and people liked it much more than a straight live stream. In fact, I was so appreciative of my experiences here on SVS: I chose Zoom to use for the church because I had seen how well it works with the critiques, and my two sisters (also in ministry) and I did a round table discussion as part of our virtual service that was inspired by the three point perspective podcast. SVS has taught me a lot more than art!

I vote for plan A. I love the idea of enjoying a week long online event for artists around the world. It's gonna keep me fired up for the whole week!

Plan A- It's like an excursion. If you can do it, it will be one of the best summits ever!
Wishing you all good health and happiness.

@Jake-Parker i think thats a great idea. Ive been to a few SCBWI conferences that have been switched from in person to online. Theyve worked really well, and its given a person who lives in an isolated community a chance to learn that I didnt have before. I think if the presentations are corded its not as big of an issue, i think for you personally it might be hard to put aside time on multiple days, so id say the middle option might be best of both worlds.
@demotlj that’s so awesome. It really is a great platform for meeting. I think their servers were probably a bit overloaded this week with all the schools and churches setting up meetings.

I would love to hear an interview from a freelance artist doing visual development or character design for animation studios. Is it possible to work remotely and how do you get to this position? Is working remotely even an option or is most of the work done inhouse?
@hakepe hi! Bobby Chiu on Youtube has tons of these interviews.

@Nyrryl-Cadiz thank you! I will check them out.
@Pamela-Fraley Sorry about that! Sounds like something is out of sync. I'll check it out and get back to you via email
@LisaF I was able to get on this one! That was awesome. I needed that little break. And something about it being a live zoom meeting made my kids okay with giving me a bit of time in my office.

With us working from home and some with kids home too ... Plan A seems great to be able to catch sessions live... would love to see Stephen Silver and Marshall Vandruff.
@Pamela-Fraley oh good! Glad it worked out!

just want to say, tho I'm not sure if its too late, you may have your list already, i would love to see Cory Godbey on the list, i really enjoy his work.
Also, being jewish and growing up on jewish kids books, an illustrator who i really love his stuff is Gadi Pollack, he is Russian/Israeli but i think he does speak English and i would really love to see him at the summit if he does and you manage to contact him!
then there is also Chani Judowitz who has some really great stuff too. would be great to see her on here if she is available.
thanks! im really looking forward to this

I know this is very late. I came across an aritst today and would love to see/hear her process a bit more.
I found Anuska Allepuz's arwork in the book " Children's picturebooks - the art of visual storytelling (2rd edition) by Martin Salisbury. The book has a short description on how she works with mxing printmaking, stencil, and handmade stamps, and assumbling the image digitally to create her art. I would love to learn more on how she work, but the internet search does get me far. I am so facinated about how she makes images like this with printmaking and stencils.
