We welcome Sean Leahy, cartoonist for The Courier-Mail, as a keynote speaker at the 8th IPEd National Editors Conference. Sean is an award-winning cartoonist and author of the popular Australian cartoon strip Beyond the Black Stump.
What does a cartoonist have to say about the world of editing? Sean’s talk, The Power of the Visual in Digital Publishing will cover such subjects as:
- Key elements of the visual that every editor should look for
- Visual literacy in the age of the e-reader
- Where can the power of the visual be used?
- What is the future of the visual as we enter the age of virtual reality?
With examples on screen of animation demonstrations and even a live drawing session, this is sure to be one of the highlights and a bit of fun for delegates.
