ICON 6 Headshot


I will be speaking at the Illustration Conference in Pasadena this summer. Delighted to be doing so. Those participating in the program have been asked to submit photos and art samples. For fun I decided to draw my headshot. Two realizations, both in the aging category: a) Surprise! I have seriously grayed temples, and b) it really is time to suck it up and get bifocals.

Congratulations. I'm sure that you will do a great job and that whatever topic you speak on it will be well received and well researched.

Best,

Bill

PS I tried bifocals, pain in the butt. But then again, I am farsighted and have a stigmatism. They did help with reading tiny type though. Try reading glasses first maybe.

Great portrait! I'd love to see a series of these...

Very nice. Can you tell us what you'll be speaking about?

I attended ICON5 in NYC. It was a very enjoyable and inspiring conference.

Bill, thanks for the vote of confidence. Any chance you'll be there in LA? It would be great to finally meet you. (And as it happens, I'm on day 3 of bifocals, which I really did go out and get the next day. (Had the prescription ready, had been hesitating. Still adjusting, unsure of the whole thing. Having to get used to new angles of vision that seem a little weird. We'll see.

Thanks, John. Still meaning to write that Wyeth/Weaver/Hendrix post...

Sunil, I'm speaking on the need for a new way to see the history of illustration, as something more than a sequence of styles. Independence from art history, while using the art historian's tools of close visual study. More embedded in culture. From what I understand, it's a new thing for ICON, a session on theory and history. With luck I won't ruin the subject for another decade!

Lotusgreen, thanks for the compliment. It was a fun passage to work on...
