Secrets to Success is an intensive one-day event held at Toynbee Studios Theatre that gives artists the opportunity to learn all the essential information needed for working in children’s book illustration today. Presentations, case studies and talks are given by a wide range of experts with specialist knowledge including career talks by prolific illustrator Tony Ross, best known for the Horrid Henry series, Alex T Smith, who was shortlisted for this year’s Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize, and Booktrust best new illustrators 2011 Chris Haughton and Claudia Boldt.
Topics include Deirdre McDermott, Editor and Art Director at Walker Books who talks about what agents look for in a potential illustrator and what they want to see from submissions; Philippa Milnes Smith, Managing Director of LAW Agency, discusses how to work with designers and art directors, whilst consultant Fig Taylor explains what’s needed in the portfolio of a children’s book illustrator.
The event, organised by the Association of Illustrators (AOI), is open to illustration students and working illustrators at different stages of their professional career as well as anyone with a lively curiosity about the industry.
