Donovan Bixley Illustrator's Workshop

3:00–4:30pm Tuesday 7 August, 2018

X Block / Alexandra Street

In this interactive workshop Donovan Bixley will be getting to the heart of the matter with how he makes words and pictures work together. You’ll be given some analogue tools (paper and pencils) to carry out some fun exercises and Donovan will give hands on examples.

Publishing over 100 books in 31 countries, translated into 18 languages, and with 18 books in the New Zealand bestsellers list, Donovan knows what he’s talking about. Donovan has won awards for his work as an illustrator, writer and designer, and has won the Overall Children’s Choice, Best Illustration, and Best Junior Fiction awards at The New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults.

Donovan is also taking part in the Illustrators’ Panel at 5.30pm on Tuesday 7 August. This panel is for those with an interest in illustration and publishing, and gathers a collective of New Zealand authors, illustrators and designers together to answer questions on their works and the industry.
