Teorico-Practico de Especializacion para Ilustradores

This is the second workshop that I took in CASA. In this class we worked on how to illustrate a poem. You can see most of the process through the photos. It was a great class where I learned a lot about some of my habits(Good and bad habits as well! ) as an Illustrator and worked to improve for the better. We learned that we as illustrator are in control of what we want to do, and that we should let life influence us not just illustrators we like. I also learned to not be afraid to do something out of the ordinary to come out with a different style.It was a fun and intensive 4 days of class, now time to enjoy the photos.

The Poem

The Final Piece!
