"I’ve found that joining Geelong Illustrators has been an amazingly inspiring experience. Having the support and community of artists who you are coming together with and not competing against is so freeing. I’ve already learnt a lot and can’t wait to see what else is ahead."

"I've now been a member of GI for over 3 years and loving every part of it. Having my bio and contact details on their website immediately increased the traffic flow to my own website and social media pages. This increased my followers and resulted in gaining commissions and further opportunities in my field. The group exhibitions have given my art a lot of exposure and given me the confidence I needed at being a new full time artist and freelance graphic designer. But the best part of being a member would have to be the meet ups with fellow artists and creatives. They're a lovely, kind and supportive bunch, always sharing ideas and events, I'd really be lost without them! A massive high five to Clare for being so active as our group manager. Her outstanding efforts are to be applauded. I will continue to collaborate with these fellow creatives for as long as it runs, and I highly recommend you to join us!"
