The Power of Pictures: Illustrators Discussion Panel featuring Oliver Jeffers

Tuesday 21st June 2016 7pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

What makes an illustration come to life? How does an idea become a story? And once it’s finished, how do you get your story published?

 

At this exclusive event, award-winning writer and illustrator Oliver Jeffers is joined by a panel of illustrators to talk about how they created the characters and stories that have captured the imaginations of children and adults alike. They talk about where they drew their inspiration from and how they honed their craft, and offer the audience tips on how to improve their own illustrations and get their stories published.

 

Don’t miss an incredible opportunity to hear some of the leading illustrators of children’s stories in the country discuss what drives and informs their work.

 

Oliver Jeffers is the writer and illustrator of several modern children’s classics, including Lost and Found, which was adapted for television by the BBC, The Heart and the Bottle, and Stuck. This year marks the 10th Anniversary of his The Incredible Book Eating Boy.

 

He'll be joined by Benji Davies, illustrator of On Sudden Hill  and The Storm Whale, Marion Deuchars, creator of Let's Make Some Great Art, and Jean Jullien, illustrator of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise and This is Not a Book. The event will be chaired by author and journalist Hannah Beckerman.

 

Please note that this panel is intended for adults.
