In this workshop, you will learn the process of making a picture book and will be guided to produce a simple picture book. The trainers will then comment and provide feedback on each picture book. It is hoped that you will have a better idea on producing picture books after the workshop and to expand on you initial efforts into a publishable picture book. You are requested to bring a short story about 700 words for the workshop. This workshop is conducted in Malay/Indonesian language.
About the trainer: Yusof Gajah
The roots of Yusof Gajah’s current paintings come from more than two decades of exploring naïve art not only for art’s sake but also for its story telling possibilities. An accomplished children’s book illustrator, Yusof has won several prestigious awards including the 1997 Grand Prix awards at Noma Concours for Children’s Picture Book Illustration in Japan. Best loved for his delightful Tiga Ekor Gajah children’s book, Yusof reveals himself as a storyteller with a sensitive way of imparting knowledge and wry wit that ignites our imagination, children and adult alike.
