Illustrate with Wonton Doodle!

Do you have the occasional bouts when your hand just itches to take that pen and draw? Do you have images in your head you wish to translate to canvas? Or do you simply want to personalize that cloth bag of yours that everyone else seem to be carrying as well?! Listen up if you uttered ‘yes’ to any of the above!

THE WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY!
Noise Singapore and Bear Fruit jointly present ‘Illustrate with Wonton Doodle!” – a 4-part workshop series by illustrator Wanton Doodle (http://wantondoodle.com). With a great flair for the whimsical, Wanton Doodle’s creations breathe life into quirky cartoon characters inspired by Japanese manga. Illustrations of his wildly imaginative dreamscapes can be found on non-conventional materials such as apparels, various canvases, vinyl toys and skateboard decks. Learn illustration techniques and practical application in this series, and develop an illustration project on various canvases and mediums by the end of the four sessions.

Session 1: Illustration Styles – Opportunities for Expansive Artwork
