About Yo Illo

Easy-going, free talks and meetups for illustrators of all levels

We've been running our meetups since January 2011, inviting illustration professionals and students to meet in a friendly environment to chat about the industry.

We meet at the pub every month in London, and throughout the year in Berlin. There's no charge, no pressure and no agenda – just the opportunity to talk to like-minded creatives about illustration, sharing opportunities and advice (and sometimes to blow off a little steam!).

On top of that, every third month we run our ever-popular Yo Illo Talks events in the heart of Shoreditch, presenting speakers on a range of the lesser-covered areas of the illustration world. Free to attend (and with free pizza and drinks) these are always popular and always quick to sell out!

Make sure to sign up to our mailing list, and come and join us at our next event!
