Illustration, Introduction to

VCD 303
Description: Generating effective imagery remains a vital skill for today's visual communicators. In this course students will be free to work digitally and/or in traditional media to solve real world illustration problems including advertising, editorial, sequential, spots and more. Through discussion and group critiques students will discover illustration theory. How do value, color, and form evoke mood in illustration? How can composing in no more than two elements lend meaning and weight? What is the axis of action in a picture and why is it important? These are just a few of the questions that will be explored through instruction, slides, examples, demonstrations and hands-on problem solving. Students will investigate the history and the future of the field of illustration and its application in sound, motion and interactivity.
