22/05/2014 Judge for the 3x3 Pro Show

Klaas Verplancke is invited to be on the judging panel for the prestigious 3x3 Pro Show 2014, along with Marieke Griffioen (Design Director, Edenspiekermann, Amsterdam), Paul Gonzales (Deputy Design Director, Los Angeles Times), Tim J. Luddy (former Design Director, Mother Jones currently art director at Brink magazine) and illustrator Mark Smith (UK). Truly international and one of the very best shows in the world. Meet the judges here.

What Klaas will be looking for: 'We embrace our taste, our preferences, our ambitions, our heroes who achieve to starring level that we strive for every day. But illustration is also the art of translating ideas, meanings, opinions and thoughts into a unique visual identity. And seeing is, besides feeling, also a process of recognizing and understanding. Therefore, professional judging needs a mental approach as well, by consciously stepping outside your spontaneous self and questioning your own choices and methods.' (...)

Klaas was previously jury member for the Bologna Ragazzi Award, the Bologna Ragazzi Digital Award, the Max Velthuijs Award and a bronze medal winner at the 10th 3x3 Picture Book Show.

Ken je Janneke Maan?
Die is soms stuk,
half kapot.
Maar elke keer,
geloof het of niet,
groeit Janneke Maan
vanzelf weer aan.

06/03/2014 Children’s Illustration in a Digital Age

Illustrators today grew up creating their works mostly, if not entirely, on paper and other non-digital surfaces. Likely, they were trained in art schools with classic illustration materials as well. But now, with a myriad of choices for digital creation: What’s similar? What’s different? What do they like or dislike?

Presented by Junko Yokota, Klaas Verplancke (jurymember of the Bologna Ragazzi Digital Award 2014) and friends. Monday March 24 at 4:00 pm Bologna Bookfair Digital Café - B90 - Hall 26
