21st Century Handcraft – make your own graphic application
Wouter van Reek
Illustration, Animation, Graphics Application
First Wouter will show how he used his own software to make his latest picturebook. Then you will learn how to modify a small part in a simple drawing program (made for this workshop) to create your own drawing technique.
A very basic example is here: https://woutervanreek.nl/Augsburg2019
When all students have made their own modules, these can be combined into one new application with previously unknown techniques.
So you need to bring your laptop, preferably with a wacom or other drawing tablet. iPads and android tablets can be used but are not handy for programming.
