About Dapo Adeola
“I’m an illustrator and character designer who creates characters and images that challenge gender norms in a fun and upbeat way. I run illustration and character design workshops in and out of schools, to help highlight the importance of representation in popular media and the possibilities of a career in illustration to children from diverse ethnicities.”
Dapo also runs Pop Up CPD sessions for teachers that explore the importance of children seeing themselves in picturebooks, and demonstrate easy techniques for character design as a way in to composition writing. Click here to read more.
