Event description


The masterclass will look at editorial illustration for publications targeting children and young adults as seen from the point of view of sector specialists who select, develop and organize editorial and visual content for young reader magazines.

The discussants will give an international overview of the role of illustration in this specific editorial niche, focusing on: 

- the subject matter and visual techniques best suited to arouse the curiosity of young children;

- the other abilities as well as drawing skills that an illustrator needs when tackling illustrated narrative, games, comics, and activity play;

- the channels through which illustrators are chosen;

Members of the publishing team of Anorak, Internazionale Kids and Zeit Leo will describe the creative process behind the ideation of each issue and how illustrators should fit into the workflow.

Just as for picturebooks, illustrators of children’s magazine have to be competent in more than just drawing. Their ability to manage workloads and engage with the other team members is what will make the difference.
