Representation in books is an important conversation happening right now, but how do you bring those written characters to life?
Illustration is just as important in representing different communities as the words written but how do you get this right? Jael will be hosting a workshop and creative colouring-in/drawing session centred around what good representation looks like and how to achieve it. Whether you are a budding or established illustrator, a person wanting to know what good representation looks like and how to advocate for it, or even if you just enjoy colouring in. All are welcome to this fun and insightful session.
Jael is a London based illustrator, art director and founder of Nubiart. Nubiart is an illustration studio that focuses on celebrating Black women, highlighting mental health and promoting self-care. Nubiart was founded in 2019, with a mission to create representational art that Black women and girls can see themselves in – art that uplifts and inspires.
Jael’s art is primarily digital, but they’ve been exploring and experimenting with Gouache and collage.
