Busy in Bangor
Some photos of the workshop from Saturday. Great Hugglewugs were drawn and decorated with sticky gooey glittery sparkles! Thank you to everyone one that came along. The Library in Bangor looks fantastic and it was great to meet Patrick Benson, Anita Jeram and Paul Howard who gave workshops too.
All the illustrators sat in down the back of the class when Patrick was giving his workshop! He talked about illustrating Roald Dahl's The Minpins. I loved the way he showed the kids everything from rough to thumbnail to finished art. He didn't seem at all precious about his artwork which was really refreshing. In fact he passed it about the class so you could have a really good look at it. So now I have a few new illustrating tricks! Thanks Patrick!
