The Illustration Workshop with Gil Tokio – one of the judges of the 2019 Poster Contest – is one of the attractions of the month of March at MCB. The purpose of the activity is to develop, in a conceptual and practical way, each participant’s ability to use drawing as applied art, that is, drawing as a communication tool; and that can be used in various media, purposes, styles and labor markets.

The methodology of the course is structured in two stages: the first one more expositive, in which concepts about what is illustration, professional market, possibilities of language and examples of varied artists will be presented and discussed. The second part will be of practical exercises, producing an illustration with techniques and manual processes.

Each participant will produce their pieces with support in the essential premises of creating briefing, rafe, thumbnail, composition, perspective, narrative, communication, style and language. At the end of the activity, all the works will be gathered for a final analysis and discussion among all.
