21st Century Handcraft – make your own graphic application


Wouter van Reek

Focus:
Illustration, Animation, Graphics Application


An introduction to javascript: use a language that is already on your computer to invent your own techniques. Existing drawing programs try to emulate analogue techniques. But that ignores the endless possibilities computing gives you to invent something entirely different.The goal of the workshop is to make you familiair with that freedom and unleash your own imagination.

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.

Wouter van Reek is a dutch illustrator, author and animator. He made the Krawinkel & Eckstein picturebooks and animation series (broadcasted in Die Sendung mit der Maus). He made live animation shows in cooperation with music ensembles Calefax and Slagwerk Den Haag. Earlier this year he finished a picturebook about the work of M.C. Escher. He works 100% digital and often makes his own tailormade software.
