Breakfast Club Series at AIGA NY

I’ll be doing a talk for AIGA NY’s Breakfast Club Series on March 24th at 8am! It will be about crossing and combining the disciplines of illustration and design. From the AIGA NY website:

Are you an art director who commissions illustrations? Are you a designer who also illustrates? Although the two disciplines have much in common, each requires its own business savvy. Most designers could stand to learn a thing or two about working with illustrators. And designers who branch into illustration themselves often feel overwhelmed by the new territory—working with reps, applying for copyrights, and establishing a distinctive style. Multi-tasker Neil Swaab, who frequently finds himself on both sides of the equation, will share some of the most important things designers ought to know about illustration.
