This was my first school visit ever! I must admit I was super nervous at first, but in the end it turned out to be such a lovely experience. The kids were extremely nice and so keen to learn!
Before going there, I prepared a speech and lots of materials to show to the class.
I made sure the speech would be quite interactive, with constant questions to the kids (by the way, some kids are capable to give hilarious answers! :D ) and things to show them, like sketches, thumbnails, original drawings and some of the books I made.
Mostly, I tried to give them an insight of my work process and all the different steps in order to make a children's books.
At the end, with the help of a white board and coloured markers, I made the kids draw Lucy the raccoon, a character from one of my books.
I hope they enjoyed it! I definitely did :)
Here's some photos and a video where I talk about Lucy's character design
