South West Illustrators is a group of illustration artists based in the South West, mostly from the Bath and Bristol area. The group celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, having been set up in the olden days, when everything was still largely in black and white and people used fax machines.

The purpose of the group was to bring illustrators together, to share their ideas, give advice, discuss techniques, pass on information, and just to see a face and hear a voice! - it could be quite a lonely and isolated existence before the invention of the internet and all its myriad ways of communicating and keeping in touch.
