Heads up for illustration enthusiasts: there's a terrific event that's right up your alley opening on Friday 5th May 2017 at Collingwood Gallery in Melbourne and running until the 19th May 2017 featuring works on paper by more than 65 Illustrators Australia members.

The president of Illustrators Australia, Richard Morden, says about the work selected to feature at the exhibition, "The A3 artworks in Paper+Pixel are either the best examples of members’ work or examples of the kind of work members want to be commissioned to do. They can be print or original, digital or traditional. Each piece is accompanied by the artist's name, a short biography, website URL and social media handles. That’s to encourage on the spot followers and contacts. Obviously it will be great if people sell some art. But what would be really exciting is to hear of members getting customers and commissions."

Awards will undoubtedly be a highlight of opening night. The Speaker’s Choice Award winner will take home $150 worth of Copic markers, while The People’s Choice Award winner gains extraordinary industry exposure and in depth feedback money can’t buy via a coveted one-hour folio review with international illustration agency The Jacky Winter Group. "To talk one-on-one with an agency, whether they pick you up or not, the information to be gleaned from that is so valuable," Richard says. "And you get their feedback on your folio and how it works."
