I.llustrators A.ssemble!

Here are the notes from the September 9th Info Meeting! For all you who missed out on the food and fun, here's the info that went along with it:

Club Incentives/Club Fee -- $25 for the entire year 
  • 15% off at Artist's Corner in Orem (Utrecht Supplier) 
  • 12% off at
  • Access to the BYU-IA wholesale framing account
  • BYU-IA T-shirt
  • BYU-IA Postcard Block (displaying artwork of students in the club: each gets their own postcard)
  • Discounted fees when applying to Illustration contests
  • BYU-IA smaller parties
  • Studio case -- a chance to display your artwork
    We will get a hold of you regarding events by....
    -E-mail (let us know if you'd like to be added to the list)
    -Blog (all e-mails will lead you to the blog--it's where most the details will be so check it! We'll even link it so you just have to click one more time)
    -Facebook (we are working on getting access to this one)
    -Fliers in classes and on studio doors (Studio is F-455)

    Some awesome events coming up:
    -ART JAMS -- We're thinking somewhere in the week around the 16th of October...where we will all meet in the studio, and you are free to: work on unfinished class projects, participate in ongoing demos (or present a demo if you learned a cool technique), participate in a "theme" (similar to last year's weekly doodles), work on your artwork for upcoming contests and shows...

    -...which leads us to: T-SHIRT CONTEST! We are still figuring out logistics of printing, so we're not sure of the details yet. But be working on ideas (they will probably need to end up as vector files, like Adobe Illustrator, etc).

    -The Vending Machine Show -- this is a department-sponsored event and anyone can enter. Start making smallish pieces to enter and sell in the show!

    We're starting the Mentoring Program!

    If you think, "I need someone to... [___________]", then we get you one!

    (the blank could be filled with something like: "give me advice regarding the illustration program/give me advice regarding a class/provide feedback for a piece of art I'm working on/bounce ideas off of someone" know. something like that.)

    So if you didn't sign up at the meeting, leave a comment here or e-mail us at

    Those who did sign up should be notified soon via e-mail.

    This will be such a great year!
