Live Streaming / Live Illustration
I was thrilled to be there, live illustrating with my iPad. Using the WONDERS OF TECHNOLOGY (and some very helpful techies at Tuned In, Redcar), my illustrations streamed live to a large screen at the entrance of the venue.
This live streaming meant that attendees were able to watch the illustrations come to life, while I walked around dropping in on different workshops.
I had a ball AND got to meet lots of wonderful people who are making schools creative, fun and inspiring for the next generation.
Shout out to Culture Bridge North East and Angela Rose for all of their organisation, hard work and funding.
Live illustration and graphic recording is charged at an hourly rate.
