Find out about Caroline Magerl's process for illustrating. There will be practical demonstrations.
View examples of roughs from Maya and Cat. The session will cover:
How to go about initial sketches, to establish an overall style.
Designing spreads and considering options for page layout.
How to go from black and white concept drawings to colour.
Even if you are not an illustrator, you will have a chance to create and we will supply the materials. However if you are an illustrator and prefer to bring your own equipment, we will be using watercolour paper, brush size 10 or bigger, a small selection of basic colours, such as blue, red, yellow and an HB pencil and eraser.
