Event description

Description

Local illustrator and design educator Juliette Dudley (Poyo Studio) will show you how to get started and make a living from being a professional illustrator, providing an insight into what it’s like to work as an independent creative based in Canberra. Suitable for individuals working in creative fields who want to expand their skill set, or anyone who is interested in learning more about the world of commercial illustration.

Juliette will walk you through the ins and outs of illustration such as developing your style, self-promotion and branding, communicating with clients, software and tools. She’ll show you some examples of projects she’s created for local businesses and show you the techniques and tools she used to make them. We’ll work on a fictional illustration brief, learning about each stage of the process from initial research to concept development and production, and there’ll be plenty of opportunities to get some one-on-one advice and feedback on your work during the session.

WHAT TO BRING:
- A sketch book (A4 recommended)
- Your preferred drawing materials (eg pencil, eraser, sharpener, pens - whatever you feel comfortable using to create your illustrations)
- Your laptop computer or tablet and charger
- Optional: drawing stylus or tablet (Wacom or Apple Pencil etc)

WHAT'S INCLUDED:
- Demonstrations on how to create a finished illustration from brief through to the final artwork
- Tips and tricks and one-on-one feedback on your own work and processes from Juliette
- Snacks and refreshments to keep you going

ABOUT KEEP CO:
Keep Co is a workshop + creative workspace - supporting local creatives and small businesses to share and promote their work and skills with the wider Canberra community. We're operating a pop-up location in NewActon during November and launching a permanent space in Dairy Road Fyshwick from December. You can drop in to either space at any time during business hours to have a chat about what makes a great creative space and meet some local movers and shakers.


OUR SUPPORTERS:
Big thanks to the team at City Renewal Canberra - this pop-up has been made possible with support from the ACT Government under the City Renewal Authority’s City Grants program. We’d also like to thank NewActon Precinct, The Dionysus Movement and the Molonglo Group for their support in realising this initiative.
