The Hildebrandt brothers were a huge influence on me growing up and I still enjoy seeing Greg’s work, (Robin Hood most recently.) When my wife pointed out to me that Greg Hildebrandt would be making an appearance at the Sahara West library in Las Vegas October 13th, I marked it on my calendar and was not disappointed. Greg discussed his adaptation of the comic strip Terry and the Pirates, his influences growing up as well as a wealth of other engrossing topics. His wife Jean (who also happens to be his Representative) was equally fascinating to talk to and learn from. Greg remains passionate and speaks with an enthusiasm as vivid as his illustrations.

Adbase is an online custom list service for design professionals. They tout themselves as a “The easiest way to reach new clients”. After using them for a couple of years, I like them—especially because they make e-mail campaigns as painless as possible.
Another great website is Brands of the world. A colleague who used to work at Virgen Advertising mentioned this site once and expressed some reluctance to share such a useful website for fear that popularity might cause its demise. Here it is anyway!
The Illustration Academy is held in Richmond Virginia (it used to be held in Independence Missouri) and brings students together with some of the best professional illustrators working today. Worth every penny if you are serious about illustration.
