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.
