Event Information

West Words Festival presents: Fantasy Art Workshop

4.5 hour Fantasy Art Workshop with illustrator Graeme Compton. Learn the tricks of the trade in this practical, hands on workshop.

Graeme is a visual artist and illustrator. He was born in Narrabri, North-West NSW, Australia. He has loved drawing since childhood. He works from home and has a busy practice, completing commissions for portraiture and illustrations for children's books.

Graeme's subjects and styles are broad, from fierce dragons to happy humans, one-eyed chooks to piano-crunching pachyderms, rendered in graphite, ink, charcoal, acrylic or pixels.

He has twice been a finalist for portraiture in the Mortimer Prize for Realism (2011-2012) and received the Grand Champion award for his work 'Egret on Tap' in the Gunnedah Art Exhibition 2013. From 2013 he began illustrating children's books and has produced numerous pictures for authors, filling twelve books by early 2017.

Location - Community Arts Centre (building next to WPCC) in "Art" room

West Words Festival is the annual premiere event for the Outback Writers' Centre

There will be opportunities to meet with fellow writers and editors and the chance to learn, network and share ideas.

There will be representatives from publishing houses, opportunities to pitch your work, purchase the books of others, along with seminars and workshops on various aspects of the craft of writing, plus some fun events. Most of all, the festival promises to be enticing, exciting and inspiring.
