Andrew Joyner: The reject pile

Session Info:

Everytime I make a book, I do lots and lots of drawings which no one ever sees. In this session you get to see those drawings, as I explore the process of creating a picture book by focussing on the rejects – all of those drawings that didn’t make it into the final book.

I talk about the value of making mistakes as part of the creative process, and all of the things that I find hard about making a book. I talk about my Rule of Fun, and how it helps me finish a drawing. I demonstrate drawing with collage and the different ways it can be used to make a character.

Topics covered:

  • Mistakes and creativity
  • Drawing and editing
  • Collage and drawing – creating characters.
  • Make it fun – the illustration process
