I found about Leeds Illo thru twitter back in January, when the first meeting was about to happen and Facebook group was just created. Group was created by Tom Wolley, the goal, according to description is: bi-monthly Leeds meet-ups for illustrators in Yorkshire. A chance to leave your desk and chinwag with fellow illustrators.
Leeds Illo are a bi-monthly meetings that take place in Leeds city centre. As it gatheres multiple creatives from illustration field is probably a great networking opportunity for me, as a graduate, to get some contacts. Moreover, since finishing college, I will be alone again and getting to meet like minded people will be great.
Also the group provides interesting news and opportunities in illustration field.
