Since 2016, the Illustration School, based in Porto (Portugal), aims to investigate the expanded role of the illustrator as researcher, editor, publisher and working across media. The Summer 2018 edition, from the 16–21 July, focused on the relation between illustration and food, exploring a variety of approaches to illustration and the construction of visual narratives via architecture, recipes and publishing. Through a series of workshops and food-related field trips and talks in six intensive days, this school exposed multiple ways in which different disciplines inform each other and contribute towards the development of the practice of illustration.
