Illustrator’s club is something I’ve been thinking about for almost a year now. It took different forms in my mind, it was a learning course, a studio, an agency, and finally I arrived at this club idea, whatever it might become in the future, but for now, it will be a Discord channel for Georgian illustrators and animators, lettering atrtists, professionals or newbies, to get to know and support each other, exchange ideas, help each other out with projects, share tips, complain a lot and shape the local industry.

This non-profit club will host free workshops, talks, portfolio reviews and more fun online or offline events. Right now, in Georgia, illustration is viewed more like a hobby than a full-time profession. I want to challenge that and this is the first step.

P.S. If you’re an organization or a brand who would like to help out or collaborate, please do reach out.
