You will begin knowing more in detail the work of Puño and "his referential garden", the sum of blogs, graphic files, illustrators and styles that inspire him.

Then you will learn to work with a graphic tablet. For this, Puño has developed a series of exclusive exercises that will serve to train both the hand and the brain. Do you remember the childhood calligraphy notebooks? You will learn to get free drawing and boost your creativity through fun tasks of digital graphomotor that will put your agility and motor skills to the test.

Once you have trained your graphic skills, Puño will show you some essential tricks to learn how to handle the gestural and corporal expression of your characters.

The next step will be to practice with some creative stimulation exercises that will help you generate great ideas and make your first illustration by drawing a song.

Finally you will learn to print your illustration separating it in several inks and adding texture.

What is this course's project?

As a project for this course, you will make an illustration of several inks and prepare it for printing, screen printing or to create a false risography with a home print.
