About Kieran de Wet
Kieran de Wet is a graphic designer and artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Born and raised in Perth's quiet city, art and comics were an outlet to escape boredom and mind-numbing monotony of Perth suburbia. Leaving high school at age 16 in 2010 and taking a chance on a small graphic design course at TAFE, he soon discovered his vocation and never looked back.
Moving to Melbourne, Australia's cultural capital, he set out to finish his degree and further his career. Influenced by a wide variety of artists that include digital painter Vlad Rodriguez, cartoonist Adrian Tomine, illustrator Alex Maleev and graphic designers Paula Scher and David Carson; Kieran is disciplined in various mediums, both traditional and digital.
To ensure you get the most out of the workshop please make sure you have:
- A computer, tablet or device of your choice
- Access to internet
- An owned or trial version of Adobe Photoshop
Please note, the workshop will be run entirely in Adobe Photoshop. If you feel more comfortable using another program like Adobe Illustrator or Procreate, these skills are transferable; but tools and commands will differ between programs.
If you do not already own Adobe Photoshop, simply sign up for a free one-month trial of the Adobe Suite; to use on the day of the workshop.
Pssst here’s a bonus! If you apply for one of our art and design programs, we will provide you with the full Adobe Suite for the duration of your course!
