15.03.2017 - 14.06.2017

verbal and visual materials in the genres of illustration, comics and graphic
novel. We will also reflect on the process of translation of ideas and emotions
"Hello! My name is Giulia Landonio. I was born in Trezzano, suburban area of Milan. I always thought I was born there in order to leave it. And so I did: I went to Estonia and from there visited Russia in search of the Russian soul and Siberian shamans. I found dull lands, monotonous towns and uncanny suburban landscapes. I found home.
Drawing is for me a way to linger in the space of the “in between”. Lines: thick, curvy, broken, sensual, chaotic – the material evidence of this space. Animals, old people, fishes, trees and blue – the inhabitants of this space.
I studied sociology at the University of Tartu and later illustration at the Tartu Art school. Currently I am enrolled in the Master program in printmaking at the Estonian Art Academy of Tallinn, where I am exploring engraving techniques and contemporary art approaches. "
the begging of the course participants are asked to bring texts (books,
quotations, poetries, fairytales, personal writings) which they wish to
visualise. During our meetings we will work on the texts to create visual
metaphors and a story board. We will also try out different drawing and
painting techniques (watercolour, acrylic, monotype, collage, graphite etc..).
By the end of the course we will finalise sketches into a comics, a graphic
novel or a series of illustration.

Bratislava by the end of may and also to the International Comics Festival in
Saint Petersburg by the end of August.
