Event: Illustrator Gathering

On the third Thursday of every month from 7-9 PM, as of 2019 searching for a new venue, we will no longer be meeting at USD. Future Schmoozes TBA,  chapter illustrators gather to share inspiration, techniques, critique current projects and enjoy the company of other illustrators of children’s books.

Here are the dates for our 2018/2019 season:
Sept 20

Oct 18

Nov 15We will have a model. There is a $10.00 fee. Please RSVP so we have a head count for the model.

Dec 13  (2nd Thursday due to Christmas) Linda Salem has generously volunteered to bring Rare Books from SDSU Edward Gorey Collection. We will be able to view them and thought it might be fun to draw from his work.

Jan 17 was cancelled due to loss of meeting location.

Feb 21 – There will be a Schmooze this month, and we will have a model. We will no longer be meeting at USD. The alternate address for February schmooze will be emailed to attendees, so be sure to RSVP to Lisa’s email below.
