I’m running a full-day picture book illustration workshop through UWA Extension.

There are four places left, so if it sounds like your kind of thing, book in and come along. Details below.

Overview

Sat Nov 15th
9:30am – 4:30pm
UWA Claremont (Western Australia)

I’ll guide you through the entire illustration process: from character designs and initial sketches, through to rough storyboards and a finished piece of artwork.

The workshop will look at the theory of picture book illustration and show how specific elements in illustrations (character, colour, line, media, lighting, point of view, composition and font) create a visual language that complements the text.

There will also be time set aside to discuss the practicalities of publishing: how to get your work in front of a publisher; how writers, illustrators and editors work together; and the pros and cons of self-publishing, e-books and traditional publishing.

Bookings

You can book in at the UWA Extension website.
