Tues, Dec 4 - Michel Kichka

The name 'illustration' (ior) in Hebrew comes from the word light. In other languages as well. The original role of the illustration is to illuminate text, to illustrate it in an enlightening manner. During the twentieth century illustrators began to give their illustrations an additional interpretive layer. Illustrations became a personal statement parallel to the texts.
Presentation with examples and explanations and experience in interpretive illustration in practical workshop
