We live in an increasingly image based culture. The digital age has brought with it a growing expectation of pictorial instruction, signs and symbols and in many contexts, the image has begun to replace the word.
A successful illustration is one that communicates the message through the unique/personal vision of the illustrator.
This course blends digital technology with traditional methods, while offering a creative environment where students can experiment and develop their illustrative skills.
Students build a portfolio (both online and hardcopy) showcasing their work, with a view to progressing to the next level, be it higher education or industry.
