The Plymouth Illustration Event 2019 is a symposium organised by the BA and MA Illustration courses at the University of Plymouth featuring talks from a renowned panel of comic book and graphic novel artists and publishers. The speakers will be reflecting on the theme of ‘Monster’ and how ideas relating to this manifest and take shape within their practice. Alongside the artists talks there will be an exhibition of student work, artist led workshops and a group of illustrators working round the clock attempting to master a monstrous 24-hour comic challenge! The event is sponsored by Writers & Artists, Origin Coffee and Blackwater Studios.
