FA 326 Illustration IV

(4 credits)
Students will explore specialized advanced Illustration themes and topics in three four-week sequences. First, in Beyond the Page, students will create illustration solutions for non-print and unconventional media (e.g. skateboards, furniture, storefronts). Projects will combine media, digital applications and visual communication within industry standards and professional practices. Second, in Character Design, students will study character design with a focus on concept, shape, structure, and mood/tone. Projects emphasize students’ creation of captivating, provoking, and magnetic characters. Third, in Fantasy Art, students will explore the world of fantasy subjects  (e.g. fairy tales, folk tales, myths, legends, heroic fantasy, science fiction, horror, and supernatural tales). Projects address the roles that fantasy art, escapist literature, film, animation, and games play in society. Studio work is supported by slide lectures, discussions and critiques. Six studio hours weekly and independent work.
