This course continues students’ exploration of illustration by simulating the experience of a professional freelance illustrator working with clients. Through a wide variety of progressive real-world assignments in such areas as editorial, book, institutional, and children’s illustration, students will learn how to analyze an assignment, create concept sketches, and produce finished art. Students can use the media of their choice, including traditional hand-drawn, digital, or a combination, for class assignments and projects. Each class will consist of the presentation of a topic, samples of artful illustration, and critiques of assignments. This seminar-style course utilizes group participation and accommodates individual needs and requests. Level: intermediate to advanced. Prerequisites: an introductory illustration course or equivalent.
Any materials necessary for the first class meeting will be communicated to enrolled students by the instructor in advance. Otherwise, materials and supplies will be covered in the first class meeting.
