Desenhado a partir da vida

Dulwich Picture Gallery are running a series of lectures from illustrators who draw from life. I’m hoping to make it to see Lucinda Rogers talk, maybe the London sketchers could meet up?

A chance to hear from three Illustrators with diverse portfolios about their work, their technique, and their influences. Each draws from life; either literally – drawing on the spot – or drawing for inspiration on their rich life history.

Lucinda Rogers

Wednesday 11 November
The practice of reportage, or drawing on the spot, still plays a part in graphic design and publishing. Lucinda Rogers discusses drawing from life, from East End garages to Burgundy vineyards and why she is attracted to overlooked or hidden places.

Lucinda Rogers draws for the Independent, Guardian, the Times, the Telegraph and the New Yorker.

Michael Foreman

Wednesday 25 November
From the moment the bomb burst through his bedroom ceiling
in 1941, Michael Foreman believes real life has coloured his work. Years of travel to exotic and remote places have contributed ideas and locations for many of his books.

Michael Foreman illustrates books, over 300 in total, many for children; writing most himself, though collaborating with Ernest Hemingway, Michael Morpurgo and Kiri Te Kanawa among others

David Gentleman

Wednesday 9 December
His wide range of work includes drawing, painting, wood engraving, print-making, illustrating and designing. He will also touch on drawing for benign and malevolent purposes and the inseparability of art and design.

David Gentleman has written and illustrated books on Britain, London, Paris and India and has designed protest posters, postage stamps and a platform-length mural on the underground
