Adult Masterclass: Fundamentals of Composition and Character

Improve your understanding of the fundamentals of narrative illustration with Alexis Deacon

When, Where

This workshop will focus on two of the most important elements of narrative illustration: composition and character design.

Using collage and simple shapes, illustrator Alexis Deacon will teach the principles behind both elements, showing how the form, scale and position of parts on the page can completely change their meaning and impact.
