Course Description

Illustration by Shi Shi Jacobs

Illustration crosses all boundaries in materials and messaging: The common unifier is the identifiable style and voice of the artist. In this course students focus on the development of characters by first working from observation to create simple forms that are then translated into a narrative context. Emphasis is placed on craftsmanship and learning a variety of materials such as graphite, pen and ink, collage and painting. You’ll develop essential skills in working with color, space and perspective. Experimentation and expressive solutions to visual problems are emphasized through a rigorous sketchbook practice and the development of final concepts.
