Gilles & Cecilie Studio recently visited Brazil and one of the projects they were doing there was for the Gol de Letra Foundation in Sao Paulo. They planned and facilitated a whole day with Fanzine Workshop and Drawing Club for a group of about 50 young children residents of the Vila Albertina Favela.
The brief was simple, they asked the youth to think about something they loved to do and then create a story both with text and illustrations. Gilles & Cecilie showed them tools and techniques for the drawing session as well as simple bookbinding skills. Before the making of the fanzines, they took all the drawings and photocopied them onto colourful paper stock to create a variety of outcomes for the young creators.
