First Impressions 2023

Kristen Nobles, Art Director, Charlesbridge

Editors, art directors, and agents are all busy people who review many images in a minimum of time. What do they see when they look at your portfolio or postcard? Join us as Kristen Nobles shares her first impression of attendee work.

Anonymous illustrations will be viewed on screen and critiqued live. Attendees to the First Impressions session may submit files but are not required to do so. If you do submit images, you must attend the review. We will do our best to get to all the images, as time allows.

For your chance to be critiqued:
Please email three illustrations to our Illustrator Coordinator by 1pm on September 6, 2023.

Each set of three images will be used to make a single slide for viewing on screen. I’d recommend RGB files at least 1200pixels wide and saved as high-quality jpgs. (But if that is confusing to you, send me what you have.) Hilary will send you a confirmation email so you know your images have been received.

Breakout 3 / Saturday, 1:15-2:15p
