I’m an illustrator too! The Prisoner and the Writer

How does the artist “interpret” the text to make the illustrations?

Presenting the process of creating the images for the picture book The Prisoner and the Writer. Retracing the Dreyfus Affair in which a Jewish army man is framed and thrown in prison, this story is about racism and the courage to tell the truth. The goal of the workshop is to show how the illustrator can use metaphors and other elements to create added meaning to the story. Sophie, illustrator,  will demonstrate how to make a monotype and the students will make their own using oil pastels.
