About the course
In this online course we will use analogue drawing processes applied to a graphic piece such as a Poster, Cover or Print taking advantage of the magic of digital edition (Photoshop)
We will work from the creation of the idea with sketches to the final illustration through topics such as handmade lettering, composition, colour, etc...

A basic level of Photoshop is required to explore certain tools such as the use of layers, masks and colour editing to make the final result more expressive.

︎Live sessions are recorded so they can be viewed later.

Computer with Adobe Photoshop and Scanner.
Sketchbook, Graphite Pencils (HB, 2B, 4B), Brushes, black ink, watercolors, gouache.

The course is aimed at artists, designers or illustrators but open to people who are interested in drawing and want to explore digital possibilities. 

Basic Photoshop knowledge is recommended.

About me
My name is Cristóbal Schmal.
I am an illustrator, artist, designer and passionate about drawing.
I believe that drawing is a form of expression that is worth discovering both to improve your relationship with representation and narrative and also as a means of observation. But I also see drawing as an emotional state where we can express our concerns, visions, desires and fears. A personal space of our own in which we feel free and confident.

I studied Graphic Design in Valparaiso (Chile) and then emigrated to Barcelona where I worked in Design and Advertising Agencies. In 2008 I moved to Berlin when I decided to take the leap to dedicate myself to Illustration. Since then I have worked for more than 15 years for different brands, institutions and media such as The New York Times, Washington Post, Taschen, Greenpeace, Financial Times, National Geographic among others.
