Celebrated Portland, Oregon based illustrator, Meg Hunt, visited us in June of 2012 to guide students in finding and expressing their inner illustrator through this intensive and exploratory two day creative workshop in Light Grey Art Lab's hometown - Minneapolis, Minnesota. This travel workshop was dedicated to bringing people from around the country together to do some serious creative soul-searching, build amazing relationships with other artists and collaborate in an incredible illustration project.
Meg sought to help other illustrators revive or expand their creative energy, plan new artistic endeavors, and discuss the business of being a working illustrator. We participated in guided in-studio creative exercises, collaborate on projects, network with other like-minded illustrators, and receive one-on-one advice to help craft your new creative goals as well as participated in our ALL ILLUSTRATORS Meet & Greet.

S-Word, collaborative zine
Meg's group created a one-day summer zine featuring a piece from each workshop participant. The final collection of images was bound into 19 hand-made accordion books.
