Learn how to perfect your digital workflow and
make use of a comprehensive image library
Ever felt “writer’s block” and didn’t know how to start fill the empty screen?
This 2 day short course will teach you how to set up, organise and maintain a growing archive of cut-out objects, images, vector shapes and drawings – and how they can help you to effectively create surprising visual solutions, unique characters and intricate 3D collages and sculptures. French illustrator and graphic design legend Geneviève Gauckler shares her unique workflow, production process and digital hands on approach. Together, you will work with photography, free hand drawings, Illustrator vectors and Photoshop pixels, to create stunning artwork with minimal effort and maximal appeal.
Participants are required to bring their own laptop with the Adobe Creative Suite pre-installed (Illustrator and Photoshop), as well as a digital camera or phone.
Before the workshop you will be asked to prepare a collection of imagery by taking photos of objects, body parts, toys, landscapes, or anything else you can think of… This footage will be used as “elements” to create and generate characters and 3D collages. A detailed tutorial by Geneviève Gauckler with information on these preparation will be sent out to the participants.
Day 1: Introduction by Geneviève, work on the creation of characters, discussion on appeal and expression of the results.
Day 2: Creation of more complex digital sculptures, discussion of message, context and abstraction.
