Illustration Workshop: Finding Your Own Voice

We designed a workshop on experimental drawing with award winning illustrator Merve Erbilgiç. Our first workshop was last weekend. We had a great time. Also we draw with the participants.

For now the workshop is only in Turkish but we are considering an English one for the future. You can follow me here for future news.

Here is a video of me working with experimental drawing techniques.

And some ink drawings from the workshop.

tomtom: bir yolculuk masalı

I was invited for Tasarım Tomtom Sokakta ( an art&design organization held twice a year) Besides from exhibitng my artworks I also painted doors for the story room. The story was about a litte girl and her mother starting a new life, a new journey. It had a lot of fantastic characters like dragons and monsters. So as I was painting the doors I was inspired by tarot cards. The story was written beautifully by Bahar Korçan and Arbil Çelen Yuca full-heartedly told this story everyday at the story room I painted during the organization. It was a one of a time experience for me.

It took me five days to paint all the doors and I am happy how it turned out. Tasarım Tomtom Sokakta was between 18-21 October. Here are some photos from the painting progress and the show.

vanilya kışı / the story behind the book

eng In December 2016 we went to Maşukiye, a small town by the mountains with an amazing view of the lake Sapanca with my author friend Zeynep Alpaslan. We both were having difficult times and for a week there we sat by the fire talk about life, universe and everything else. We draw, wrote poems and get back to our homes is Istanbul. Zeynep, later was influenced highly from the nature of Maşukiye and she wrote haiku poems. Final Kultur Sanat Publishing loved the poems and wanted to publish it and I would be the illustrator of the book. On the following summer we went back to Masukiye and I illustrated the poems there. This time we were full of joy and hope. Diffucult times were passed and they became art. The book was loved so much that the first edition was sold out after three months and had it’s second edition. Here is the process of creating this beautiful book.

tr Zeynep Alpaslan’ın yazdığı benim resimlediğim Final Kültür Sanat Yayınlarından çıkan Vanilya Kışı’nın çok güzel bir hikayesi var. Zeynep’in sonsözde de anlattığı gibi 2016 yılının Aralık ayında ikimiz de hayatımızın zor bir döneminden geçerken biraz rahatlamak için Maşukiye’ye gitmemizle başladı her şey. Gündüzleri bahçede dolaşıyor, geceleri birbirimize öyküler anlatıyor, şiirler yazıyor, resimler yapıyorduk. Daha sonra ikimiz de İstanbul’daki evlerimize döndük. Zeynep Maşukiye’nin doğasından o kadar etkilenmişti ki duygularını harika haiku şiirler olarak yazdı. Ardından Final Kültür Sanat Yayınları kitabı yayınlamak istedi ve çizimlerini de ben yapacaktım. Bu defa yaz mevsiminin sonlarında ikimiz beraber tekrar Maşukiye’ye gittik ve ben kitabın illüstrasyonları orada açık havada yaptım. İkimiz de neşeli, umutlu ve hevesliydik.  Kitap o kadar sevildi ki ilk üç ay içinde ilk baskısı tükendi ve ikinci baskıyı yaptı. Bu kitabın yayınlanmasında emeği geçen herkese içten teşekkürlerimi sunarım.

Dec 2016, Maşukiye
