&
POWER OF
STORYTELLING
12th - 13th of October 2016

Hold on to your pumpkin spice lattes everyone, because this October visual playground is partnering up with the power of storytelling to bring you face to face with two amazing and inspiring illustrators from the US wendy macnaughton and carson ellis.

macnaugthon

Wendy is an illustrator and graphic journalist with clients like The New York Times, NPR, Juxtapoz and Gizmodo attached to her name and has published illustrated books both as an author as well as in collaboration with her partner, writer Caroline Paul.

She’s very excited to share her knowledge about how to market oneself as an artist, how to pitch work, business practices and more in her talk, especially considering how sparsely these subjects are tackled in the local illustration scene.

Carson is renowned for her illustrated children’s books including the New York Times Bestsellers The Wildwood Chronicles, written by Colin Meloy. Her outstanding work is also appreciated in the form of album art, as she is the illustrator-in-residence for the indie folk band The Decemberists.

This October, she’ll be sharing with us highly needed insights towards the children’s book industry, drawing spontaneous parallels between the international industry and the local specifics: the participants will be taken through the process of creating and publishing an illustrated children’s book from start to finish, with all the intricacies known to a master of the craft.
