I've updated the list on my blog, Conferences: Illustrators. This is a list of conferences, workshops and conventions that are of particular interest to illustrators. Also, I've added book covers to highlight illustration styles represented by various agents. To see which agent represented that artist, click on the book cover.

You're welcome, Artemesia! Thanks to a reader's suggestion, I just added a really cool animation expo that's taking place in November.

Vonna,


Thank you for this compilation of illustration conferences! I have one to add to the list: Icon 8, http://8.theillustrationconference.org/   July 9-12, 2014 ? Portland Art Museum ? Portland, Oregon


There's also conferences like WonderCon (http://www.comic-con.org/wca) and DesignerCon (http://www.designercon.com/) that illustrators can purchase vendor tables for (if you share a table with someone, it's much more affordable), but they're not specifically targeted for children's book illustrators.

Thanks, nightengail; I'll take a look at these tomorrow. Not targeting children's illustrators isn't really a problem; a lot of editors, agents and art directors have mentioned lately that they have been looking for illustrators at these types of events for something "fresh."

Thanks Vonna, it's not often that illustrators get an opportunity like this to actually use media in a conference workshop - often it is speakers and visuals, sometimes a technique demonstration (love those) - but we found a fabulous facility, three sides windows, up in the trees, fall sunlight - it's going to be amazing!
