Experience hosted by Francisco

2 hours
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 3 people
Hosted in English, Portuguese

What you'll do

At ArtStudio Carcavelos the guest will make, with my instructions, one or two pages of his own comic, with quality paper pens and markers. Then you have to scan and work the digital images in digital graphics software, then paginate in Word and export to a PDF file ready for final printing. We'll make the book cover and see the options for publishing this book.

Important elements of this process:

. The main thing: we must have a story
. How to realize the idea: have a drawing style (art without the technique)
. Images collage and drawing with lightbox
. The radical aesthetics of black and white: Corto Maltese and Sin City
. The influence of abstract art; the classical perspective rule and the changes to perspective of surrealist masters; the rupture of cubism
. The essential visual arts elements: lines, geometric shapes and symbology

Meet your host, Francisco

Host on Airbnb since 2018
  • Identity verified
I am a visual artist and illustrator since 18 years old; teaching since 2016 in my Carcavelos studio and I was a volunteer tutor of graphic design with Paint.net software at the Red Cross - Parede during 3 years. I am 46 years old, very calm, with many years of experience in computing and drawing / painting, and a genuine passion for pedagogy, whatever the student's level of knowledge. Recently a comic book of mine was published. I have been making drawing exclusively for a decade, influenced by modern and contemporary art.
