Special workshop conducted by award winning artist Rovina Cai

On 九月 7th, 2014

Thursday 9:30am – 3:30pm, 2/10/2014

Rovina was a student of Yaping’s art classes for many years and is an international award winner. We have invited her to conduct a special workshop for our students. Please don’t miss this opportunity!

Rovina says:

I am a freelance illustrator specializing in fantasy art. I love making illustrations that evoke a sense of intrigue; images that make you linger, hungry to know the story behind it. My work is often inspired by the past; from myths and fairy tales to gothic novels, these stories resonate with me because they bring a little bit of magic and wonder to the present day.

I received a degree in Communication Design from RMIT University, and then completed my MFA in Illustration as Visual Essay at the School of Visual Arts. My work has been featured in publications like Spectrum Fantastic Art, American Illustration, and Communication Arts.

Rovina’s works:

DRAWING MYTHICAL CREATURES Workshop  introduction:

In this workshop, students will create a drawing of an imaginary creature. Using pictures of existing animals and creatures from mythology as inspiration, students will combine parts of different animals together to illustrate their own unique creature. This workshop will teach students about storytelling and creature design, and using inspiration from real life to enhance their imagination.

幻想生灵画

在此专题课中,学生们将创作一幅幻想中的生灵的绘画。以现存的动物和神话中的生灵作为激发点,将把不同动物的各部分组合到一起来体现他们自己独特的个性。专题讲习课会教给同学们生灵设计与故事性,以及如何运用现实生活的灵感来启发想象力。

Rovina上大学前一直是亚平的学生。 后在美国做插图师。 曾获“全球顶级幻想艺术家年鉴”奖。这次我们邀请她来为我们的学生做一次workshop. 希望大家不要错过机会。
