Developing Illustration Practice
The three week long course will challenge students to explore narrative illustration and, based on literary sources, investigate how to tell a story through images. With support, students will create, develop and present their own personal illustration project.
Robbie Bush and Kasia Matyjaszek
1 year of undergraduate study.
By the end of the course, through attending classes and engaging in directed and independent study, students should be able to investigate aspects of historical and contemporary illustration and subject matter through a range of approaches. In addition, students will be able to develop personal visual ideas from texts to create an extended series of illustrations and to produce a short reflective essay.
The exploration of processes and materials and the use of a range of established and experimental techniques will enable students to cultivate their own personal visual language.
In addition, the course will provide students with the opportunity to present a range of considered and sophisticated studio work in an appropriate form demonstrating a range of ideas, storyboarding and development. Students will be expected to produce a resolved output in response to their own ambitious personal illustration brief, and in addition set out issues relevant to their project within a short critical essay.
