This is a workshop for all level of illustrators or budding storytellers. It will predominantly be using the professional sketching process called thumbnails, to sketch out a storyline of choice, or one provided. There will be a brief introduction, explaining the format of the day, followed by some pointers and technical insights into book publishing and self-initiated work. You will explore how to initiate a story idea, then deal with character development and thumbnailing narrative. There will be plenty of one-on-one throughout the session, offering bespoke creative direction. The day will also cover various technical and professional insights into illustrating for publication, whilst also learning a little about Caroline’s life as a professional illustrator. There will be a chance to look through original artwork for publication, the process of ideas, sketches and final art along with sketchbooks that Caroline uses for her personal work. Having combined a day of Caroline’s expert tuition with your own ideas and capabilities, you will leave having created your own illustrated story.

Caroline has illustrated over 55 books over the last 20 years. Further credentials include having three illustrations chosen last year for the permanent collection in the Baoshan International Folk Arts Museum, Shanghai, and five illustrations chosen for inclusion in the internationally acclaimed Illustrators exhibition – World Trends in Children’s Books in Bolognia. Caroline is currently working on her next book for Little Tiger Press, as well as working part-time at Plymouth College of Art as Pathway leader in MA Illustration Lecturer BA Illustration. She has also been a peer reviewer for The Journal of Illustration – Academic Journal 2018.
