Talks and workshops are run across Australia. Sessions are energetic, creative and informative.
Workshops are energetic, creative and informative. Students participate in a range of illustration activities and gain insight into key visual literacy tools.
Activities include character design, creating illustrations, interpreting text visually and why keeping a sketchbook is so important (emphasis on important!).
Includes demonstrations, visual examples and Q&A.
Talks explore the process of illustrating books, methods for creating characters, visual literacy and my personal artistic journey from scribbling in my school books to illustrating for major publishers.
Included visual examples and Q&A.

The Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas (VIC) ‘His presentation was polished and he got through everything he wanted in the hour. Giving a publisher pitch to the kids was a great idea – it got them drawing, and gave a real (simplified) idea of what it’s like to work as an illustrator – the rejections, the processes, some tips and tricks, some of the lingo. He gave them deadlines (one or two minutes) and got them to add settings and backgrounds.’
Margaret River Primary School (WA)‘With over 260 students, ranging from years 1 – 4, Gabriel expertly explained to the students his craft. He presented at a level that all the students could understand and they were all keen to listen intently.’
