"Just want to tell you how much the 139 students kindergarten to year 6 enjoyed Gabriel’s talk! They were enthusiastic and listened and learnt and became motivated to illustrate. One hour was a great length of time and it had drawing, talking, movement and imagination involved in the presentation. Thanks heaps! Hopefully we’ll get some illustrators out of his visor to The Scots School Albury."

 

 

Wynyard High School, Tasmania

"On Monday 23 October 2017, 60 Visual Art students from across the Grades had the opportunity to participate in a workshop conducted by a children’s book illustrator Gabriel Evans. Gabriel has illustrated over 18 books and has worked for major publishers including Walker Books Australia, The Five Mile Press and Koala Books. Gabriel passed on his vast knowledge and professional experience to students through interactive activities that focussed on the process of designing a character, the tools in creating a page spread, portraying the emotional body language of characters and training the eye in composition. Gabriel’s presentation methods were engaging, motivational and inspirational."
