Tina Siuda

"My name is Tina Siuda. I was born in Poland, now I live and work in beautiful Porto, I studied graphic design, multimedia arts, drawing and printing techniques. In 2017 my works were selected for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair Illustrators Exhibition, the same year I was honoured a 2nd prize at the 10th Encontro Internacional de Ilustração de São João da Madeira. In 2020 I have been invited to the 3rd edition of MiiC, Mostra Internacional de Ilustración Contemporánea - an international collective exhibition showcased in Santiago de Compostela and Coruña. For the last few years I have been exhibiting my works in a selection of galleries across Europe.

I am a freelance illustrator, image maker, print maker, sometimes an animator, sometimes a dancer. In 2020 I founded a micro risograph press project called Not So Fast Press.

I draw gentle characters and imaginary landscapes, inserting tiny narratives in between the details. On my desk you can find well sharpened pencils, gouache paints, colorful, shiny bits of paper and a sleeping cat - if there is a cat in the room. My favorite color is blue."

What you will learn
  • We will make textures, use ready-made patterns or shapes and experiment with different kinds of paper to make our illustrations. We will think of a character who can live in our landscape and draw him.
  • We will explore how the qualities of paper - texture, thickness, transparency, color, pattern can add value to the illustration;
  • Improvising with cut out elements, “sketching” with shapes
  • Defining a palette of color, elements or shapes to build a series of illustrations with a coherent aesthetic;
  • Bring a landscape to life and animating a landscape with a character.
Workshop results
The final result of the workshop will be sketches and a small series of illustrations showing a character in his landscape, made in collage and mixed media.
