Are you looking for a simple yet outstanding way to pimp up your travel blog? Do you want to show to your beloved ones how special is the way you see a place while traveling? Would you love to add some extra to your social media to gain followers who appreciate an artistic touch of a personal view of a place? If the answer is yes, our two days intense animated travel journal workshop is for you.
If you think urban sketching or animation is not for everyone, we have a great news! Making a fast sketch of a place what’s catching your interest is not as hard as you think, and turning it into an animated gif or short video is actually something, what you can learn to do within a few hours. This workshop is for everyone who would love to share their unique travel experiences with those they care about. Curious newbies and experienced pirates are both welcome.
In our workshop you will learn:
To gain confidence in drawing
The basics of urban sketching
Find and develop your own personal style
The basics of stop-motion animation
The technical background of digitizing and animating the artwork of your travel journal, and converting it into gifs or short videos with open source software
The two days workshop is taking place in Construkt Startup Hostel on 17-18th of February, from 10am to 5pm with an hour lunch break between the sessions.
We provide all materials, tea, coffee, and snacks, but the lunch is on you. For a more fluent workflow, we kindly ask you to bring your laptop, if it’s possible.
About Eszter Drienyovszki
Eszter is a Hungarian illustrator and animator whose passion is spreading art all around the World. She graduated as a graphic designer in Budapest right before moving to Portugal, where she fell in love with the vibe of Lisbon, what pushed her to create her first animated travel journal, a love letter to the city in the form of the short film Lisbon Sketches, in collaboration with the Finnish composer Mikael Kuosmannen. Since then wherever she goes keeps drawing, and spreading the love towards urban sketching.
‘I believe, everyone can draw. We all draw when we are kids, and we all have fun while doing it. The way how we draw is just as unique as our fingerprints, and to find our personal way of expression is as important as finding the right words by composing a letter. I push people out of their comfort zone to show that the confidence while embracing our own personal style is way more important than to follow some so-called rules of creating art. Because art is about seeing the individuals, and not about art itself.’
