Self-publishing in pictures

Back at the start of September Kingston hosted a two day conference on self-publishing, brilliantly organised and delivered by Alison Baverstock. As well as arranging for a host of stimulating speakers, Alison also employed a conference ‘artist’. When I first read about this in the conference blurb, I wasn’t really sure what it meant.

What we got was the brilliant David Gifford, furiously scribbling away during each and every session. And what he produced weren’t just illustrations of the concepts expounded by our speakers, but witty insights into the topics under discussion. He definitely added value to the conference experience, by contributing a visual running commentary and providing a lasting record of what was covered. I’ve included some of my favourites below. How would you illustrate self-publishing?
