Birgitta Sif I

On Monday we had a lecture by Icelandic illustrator Birgitta Sif one of the course leaders, where she spoke about her work and working methods. Birgitta feels the common thread to her work is the experience of being different and shy. "I think the strongest characters are those who reveal who you are."

Birgitta is an advocated the importance of sketchbooks to record anything and everything for those details are what makes your "story and character even stronger." Birgitta does this and more concealing personal details in the story anchoring it to her life.
