ICON The Illustration Conference is a national, grass-roots, not-for-profit, professional entity established in 1997 to serve the illustration community. ICON is an all volunteer organization supported by sponsor contributions and registration fees. Unlike many other conferences, ICON is not supported with membership dues. Since the first conference in Santa Fe, NM, our purpose has been to provide a platform for illustrators to address, in a timely manner, the most important issues and ideas facing the profession. ICON is committed to creating an ongoing dialogue that serves the whole industry. Each conference brings together a community of illustrators and creative professionals to explore new concepts, media, technologies, and professional issues. Programming topics fall into these three important categories: Inspiration, Industry and Business. Previous biannual conferences have been held in Santa Fe, Philadelphia and San Francisco.
