The Itinerant Illustrator was the guiding idea behind the 5th Illustration Research event hosted by Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore in November 2014, supported by The British Council, who provided travel grants for several of the speakers. Further partners were Intellect Books, Cardiff Metropolitan University and Manchester School of Art. As well as the two-day programme of talks, organized by Dr Sandeep Chandra Ashwath and Desdemona McCannon, there was an exhibition of contemporary illustration and animation at the college, curated by Anna Bhushan, Alison Byrne and Matt Lee, and a pop-up bookshop selling Indian picture books and printed materials. The students at Srishti undertook the branding and promotion of the event as part of their semester project. The event was well attended by an international audience, and speakers also delivered papers via Skype. We are grateful to the Director of Srishti, Dr Geetha Narayanan, for her generosity and support. Thanks must also go to Dr Ashwath for his role in ensuring the smooth running and conviviality of the event.
