FIL Guadalajara & IV FILustra 2o17
From Nov. 25-28 I was invited by Ediciones Ekaré and Rubén Padilla, who organises FILUSTRA, and was asked to create and impart two workshops. So I did:
Crear Personajes en un Pim Pam Pum.
a one hour workshop for the general public to learn a quick way to create characters and also make them interact with each other. Most of the people doing the workshop were illustrators, so I added an extra exercise to make it more challenging.
Workshop : Cuentos Veloces
a 6 hour workshop created with the chilean artist Cristóbal León. This workshop was for illustrators. They were given different tasks to create characters and a 10-12 page illustrated book to be used for future projects.
talks at FILustra
I am not a big fan of talking in front of an audience, so I was very brief when participating in the conversation about Abstraction in my books. Moderated by Abril Castillo. Other illustrators that participated: , Mari Johnsen ,and Alejandra Acosta
I also gave another short talk about the process of illustrating La Apuesta, published by Ekaré.
