Children’s Book Illustration Short Course at NTU

Children’s Book Illustration Short Course at NTU

For several weeks now, I have been attending the short course proposed here at NTU on children’s book illustration. It has been a pleasure attending the classes taught by Sarah McConnell. Having no previous experience in book illustration, this has enabled me to explore a different artistic vocation which is a lot of fun. It’s a lot of hard work and the course isn’t only about drawing but also coming up with a story and characters and developing them to make the book a viable project.

Developing the characters and giving them a very particular personality is quite challenging; for the finished artwork I have a preference for using colouring pencils however this course has given me the opportunity to have a go at using charcoal, which I had never really done before.
