The Idea of You – It's Personal

4 Day Illustration Masterclass
August 4–7, 2022
Vienna / Austria

Generating solutions to problems in a very personal way.
Original ideas, genuinely personal and unique solutions come from within—meaning from who you are, what you are, how you feel, what you like, how you think. At best, ideas in some way reflect who you are. Your own unique way of seeing and solving a problem, interpreting a narrative, or simply augmenting a beautiful or thoughtfully written editorial. We will delve into this idea of solving problems by really taking it to a personal level. We will then distill those ideas, make sense out of them, make them direct and impactful—or perhaps, simply subtle and nuanced. 

Required skills:
Medium to advanced illustration skill level, but you should have some experience creating illustrations from start to finish.

Intermediate English proficiency:
The course will be conducted in English, and there may be some reading materials/discussions involved.

Required material:
Sketchbook and/or a pad of drawing or tracing paper for sketching, pencil, pens, eraser; materials you need for the final illustration—traditional or digital media are both acceptable.

4 Day Illustration Masterclass
September 1–4, 2022

The importance of finding the root of an idea is the topic of this masterclass with illustrator James Yang.
James will show you how to free your mind from the anxiety of creating ideas, and give you strategies on how to find unique solutions to illustrate even complex concepts. You will work on an assignment based on a real life project, and you will also learn how to turn thumbnails into sketches and great final illustration. After this workshop you will have a method which helps you to painlessly come up with visuals for any topic, by finding the essence of ideas.

Required skills:
Recommended for intermediate to advanced level.

Intermediate English proficiency:
The course will be conducted in English, and there may be some reading materials/discussions involved.

Required material:
For idea exercises, bring a large inexpensive stack of drawing papers, a pad of tracing paper, sketchbook you normally use, pens, permanent markers, pencils, and tape. Please also bring any material you want to use to make your final illustration, which is up to you to decide. You may want to look up reference materials, or do research, so having some kind of web device would also help (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc. Free wifi will be provided).
