Digital Illustration Workshop


  • Beit Waraq Ras El Nabaa Beirut Lebanon

Digital Illustration Workshop with David Habchy in Beit Waraq


Saturday Feb 22 2014 until Sunday Feb 23 2014 from 10:00 am until 04:00 pm
Beit Waraq, Nabaa El Laban, Ras El Nabaa, Beirut, Lebanon 

During this two day workshop, you will be taking out your old family photo albums and be asked to dig it into those pictures you remember and don’t remember. Maybe a picture of a summer picnic in Broumana or of your aunt Georgette posing in her flowery dress in front of your grandfather’s store. You will imagine an extended scenario starting from these selected pictures and ending wherever your imagination and wacom takes you. 

You will be putting that scene to life through an extensive trip in digital illustration. 
Get your photoshops ready and installed. No photos will be harmed during this workshop. 


BIOGRAPHY 

David Habchy waters his moustache every Wednesday. On the other days, he draws, paints, animates, builds things, and stocks archives he finds in abandoned Lebanese houses. He dreams of redesigning old currencies, and his current main target is the 5000 Lebanese pound bill. In addition, David is a founding member of WARAQ art collection, which was established in 2012 for creating and showcasing multidisciplinary projects in the Arab world.
