This year's Falmouth illustration forum takes as its theme the subject of the monstrous. As a subject for consideration this somehow feels timely. Perhaps that's always been true, it is how we define the monstrous that defines our era. If the monstrous is defined as the other, the things that fall outside of the system, then when we talk about the monstrous we are actually talking about the system itself.

This year's speakers are illustrator Virginia Mori who has most recently worked on photographic adaptations of her drawings for Vogue Arts and Gucci, bestselling author Lauren Elkin whose books include The End of the Oulipo and Flaneuse and who is a lecturer in English and co-director of the Centre for New and International Writing at the University of Liverpool, Maki Suzuki from the design studio Åbake whose collaborators include Francis Upritchard, Daft Punk, Ryan Gander and Martino Gamper and painter Marcelle Hanselaar (marcellehanselaar.com/) who has exhibited internationally and has work in public collections including the V&A and The British Museum.
