This workshop is about creating a fictional character and what it looks like. What does the illustrator know about the character that no one else knows? How does an illustrator work? How do you draw feelings, perspectives, and what secrets are there that only illustrators know about? And how is it possible to draw a character exactly the same but from different angles in a whole book?

Helena Bergendahl

What is your name and how would you briefly describe what you do?

My name is Helena Bergendahl and I am an illustrator, mostly for childrens books nowadays. I used to work with magazines. Sometimes I have workshops in schools. Sometimes I am a project coordinator.

What’s the best thing about working with you, from a clients point of view?

When I get passionate about a job I also get focused and fast. This happens a lot, even when it comes to climate change, how to teach maths, plumbing or consumers rights. I have been a professional for more than twenty years, and know what will work, what looks good in what media.
