Icon 7, the illustration conference is in Providence, RI June 13th-16th.
I cannot go since that is close to my trip to Taos, but some might find it interesting. Chris Sickels wrote up a review of Icon 6: http://cincyillustrators.blogspot.com/2010/08/chris-sickels-icon-6-report.html
It looks like this one has some interesting speakers including Adam Rex, Dan Santat and Sam Weber.
It looks like early-bird registration is still available. Anyone going this year?
