Building on the success of the thoroughly inspiring, and illustratively focussed, event hosted at Shoreditch House in April, we scheduled a similar evening at Soho House New York.
You Can Now Illustrate, New York City took place at Soho House New York on Wednesday 15th May from 7pm. A big thanks to our three inspiring speakers and all those who came along.
Joining YCN on the evening to share insights and inspirations into their professional practice were typographer and art director Craig Ward, illustrator Mike Perry and Art Producer at Mother New York Shalini Saycocie Carbone. The event was open to a mix of YCN members, and members of Soho House New York. Our guest speakers each presented for around 20 minutes, leaving time for questions, discussion and a drink to follow. Mike played some music as an outro.
Mike Perry is a designer and artist working in numerous media: books, magazines, films, newspapers. He draws, paints, and illustrates. He animates. He cuts, pastes, and builds. He creates sculpture projects and installations. He crafts limited-edition silkscreen posters as well as large-scale ad campaigns. He curates books and monographs. He can be enlisted to design Mike Perry originals for display at home or office. He gets lost in pattern and wants you to get lost with him, too. He wants to
mesmerize and awaken you through his constellations of line, form, shape, color, idea.
