Join us for an online illustration critique meeting via Skype on Monday, November 12, 2018 from 8:00pm to 9:00pm.

We welcome a special guest, Justin Krasner, editor at Odd Dot, an imprint of Macmillan!

Here’s how it will work:

•  This event is open to active members only.

•  Up to 10 participants can submit an image for inclusion in the critique. Up to 5 additional members can join to participate in the discussion. Registration options are included below. Registration starts on October 28, 2018.

•  You must include your Skype ID on the registration.

•  Participants may send one image for inclusion in the critique. Send the image in JPG format. 1600 pixels is a good width (and whatever height), and the file should be <500KB. Send the image to Images must be received prior to 11/05/2018.

•  Participants will receive access to a private blog site where the images will be posted for display during the critique meeting.

•  The critique moderator will initiate the Skype call five minutes prior to the start of the session. We will need to limit the amount of discussion for each image to stay on schedule.

If you are not familiar with using Skype, set up a test call with a friend prior to registering (so you can enter a working ID on the registration form).

Since this is a members-only event, please be sure that you are logged in to this site in order to see the registration options.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: By registering for this event, you agree to allow your images to be posted on the web site used during the discussion. Images will be removed from the site within 24 hours of the critique. The site will only be visible to critique participants.
