Illustration may be the form of art that the majority of us are most familiar with. Many of our favourite children’s books are fondly remembered as much for the pictures as the words within them. We also see illustrations every day; in newspapers, on posters, even in instruction booklets. DPICT aims to bring a greater appreciation of this enduring and timeless discipline, through an exhibition that acknowledges and celebrates the talent of the many illustrators in the UAE.

Illustration brings words to life through visual representation, depicting reality in a recognisable form whilst delivering a clear and strong message. DPICT will explore this concept and will help to create a network among illustrators as they view each other’s work and initiate a dialogue about their common passion.

CRAVING



Craving for perfection..


These are some of the work process stages. At first I was thrilled to keep the image just with gray, black and white. Then, inevitable, colors came till the last stage, which I felt overcoloured, so I decided to desaturate the image a little bit. Finish!

TIMELINE FINANCIAL CRISIS



Esta línea de tiempo desplegada muestra las acciones tomadas por los países del GCC para afrontar las agitadas aguas del mar financiero en los últimos seis meses. Decidimos darle un enfoque en el cual las ilustraciones dejaran circular librementre la información a través de la doble página. Los pequeños personajes, sin mucho detalle, atraviesan dinámicamente las franjas que a su vez, están organizadas cromáticamente. Todo en aras de la claridad.
