London Live Illustration Scribe at IAS Conference.


My latest live illustration or scribing session, was for the Institute of Alcohol Studies conference on ‘Alcohol Marketing and Protecting the Vulnerable’. A fascinating topic to capture with live illustrations and a great organisation to work for.

I created the illustrations whilst listening to the different presentations and worked into them further during the lunch break. Delegates had access to the illustrations to take photos and live tweet with the event hashtag alcMC. At the end of the day the boards were photographed and digitised so the organisers could email them out to the attendees and also use online.


Live illustration is a great way to enhance a conference, seminar or event. The cartoons act as a great way for delegates to discuss the subject and network, and are a useful way to remember key points from the event.
