Robert Dobbie: 2013-14 Faculty Development Grant Report

Robert Dobbie attends ICON conference

Speaker at the ICON Conference


In Winter 2014 I received a 2014 Faculty Development Grant to attend ICON 8 (Illustration Conference 8) in Portland Oregon. This grant funded travel to Portland, the registration fee, meals and hotel accommodations. The field of illustration is at a constant rapid change and as an instructor of this concentration of art ICON 8 offers a unique setting in the industry. The main focus of my attendance of ICON 8 would be the Educators Papers Presentations where instructors from art schools across the country show how they keep the projects for their illustration students relevant and exciting. ICON 8 is a non-profit organization run by illustrators and designers with the intent of providing the growing trend \s to an international audience of image makers and educators.
