ILLUSTRATION WORKSHOP with Jesús Cisneros.
Characters on stage
How to draw a character? We will look for strategies in which they will participate intuition, memory and imagination. We will study the independent character, isolated, and then put it in relation to others and configure scenes that convey meanings, whether obvious or subtle, humorous, poetic,
political, symbolic, etc…
We will also talk about the exploration of the most free and unconscious drawing, of chance
and the experimentation that notebooks make possible. Also, as point of contrast and balance, of the need for certain doses of reflection to the time to analyze images that will allow us to have useful tools to build illustrations and convey messages.
We will work on the expressive possibilities of black and white, its strength and simplicity. We will then introduce ourselves to color, focusing in particular in the possibilities of the oil technique and monotype.
