Roald Dahl 3: We received the visit of an expert!

 

As part of our Author study project, we are also learning about the importance of ilustrators in stories. Roald Dahl chose mainly to work with Quentin Blake. Apart from discussing the importance of illustrations and finding facts about his life, we also learnt about his technique and we put it into practice.

In order to compare different ones, we invited the digital illustrator, Felicitas Tomkinson, to visit our class and to tell us everything about her technique. She has a special tablet connected to a PC and uses Photoshop in order to create illustrations.They look amazing! She is an anime specialist and has travelled to a lot of places, including Los Angeles, USA, in order to work there.

We compared her technique to Quentin Blake’s stating similarities and differences and  decided to plunge into the adventure of merging both techniques.
