Join expert character designer Vincy Lim for a drawing workshop featuring tips, tricks and feedback on designing your own unique characters!

The workshop will begin with a brief presentation about different aspects of character design while participants draw. After the presentation, Vincy will aid each participant in how to push their character designs further, with helpful critiques and suggestions. Participants are welcome to bring their own materials, such as their laptop + drawing tablet if desired, and are encouraged to bring reference photos of things that interest them in order to inspire the characters they create. Drawing materials will be provided. 

Vincy Lim is a Chinese-Canadian non-binary sapphic illustrator and cartoonist whose work revolves around the themes of self-love, queerness, disability, and abuse. Through graphic memoirs and fictional stories grounded in the realities of today's marginalized groups, Vincy produces work that emphasizes on loving yourself, healing, and the recovery process. Vincy is a current student of the OCAD U Illustration program. 

Student-Led workshops are funded by the Ontario Post-Secondary Access and Inclusion Program (OPAIP) administered by the Writing & Learning Centre. These workshops are free, including materials, and are open to all current students.
