Last Saturday 5 de Mayo Hola Hoboken Dual Language Charter School organized a Children´s Book Fair in Hoboken where I was invited to teach an Illustration Workshop and give a talk. I also had a table to sell my books and sign them for the new little fans:
It was a great day, full of books and kids. I taught them how to create expressive faces: a plain face is boring, a face with personality is just great. You have to play with the eyebrows, shapes, eyes, mouth… everything adds personality to a character!
Evry kid worked great, and some of them where just potential amazing artists! We worked on some exercises I brought and the faces they created were really strong and fun, check them out!
After that, I gave a talk about how important imagination and creativity are: it was a great day! Thanks to everyone at Hola Hoboken for their fantastic work!
