No, it's not very difficult... Processing (www.processing.org) is one of the simplest, free, open-source programming languages for visual artists and designers. Initially created to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context, Processing quickly developed into a tool for creating finished professional work as well. During an intensive one-day training guided by an experienced programmer and designer you can get acquainted with the basic, yet surprisingly effective possibilities of Processing in the field of interactive illustration, that is illustration reacting in one way or another to the live activity of the viewer (e.g. mouse movements, clicks, position towards the computer screen, sounds made etc) or any other input/data available in the computer or on the internet (e.g. current time, temperature, amount of light etc). You will receive hand-outs to practice all the exercises at home after the workshop. Next to hands-on instructions also several examples of professional interactive illustrations will be discussed. The fundamental goal of the course is to stimulate innovation in the field of illustration and prepare professional illustrators conceptually and technically for the new challenges in the digital age and the online/e-publishing world, regardless of their initial computer-skills.
