You will not only develop your strengths as an illustrator but also learn to build your own practice when you graduate. You’ll have exposure to a wide range of applications for illustration (from packaging, editorial and publishing to storyboarding, character design and comic strips), using both traditional and new media to explore your creative ambitions. You’ll take advantage of excellent links with industry and professional illustrators, and on graduation will have the choice of a wide range of career options.
The emphasis is on developing your practice as an illustrator rather than teaching you to draw. This is a hard-working and challenging programme, offering fantastic opportunities for you to develop into a sought after practising professional.
You’ll work as part of a small year-group of approximately 30, in a studio environment which closely mirrors what you’d find in industry.
You’ll have access to excellent facilities including traditional processes and cutting-edge Mac suites featuring all the software you could need. We will consider how illustration can respond to and solve real issues. You’ll have opportunities to exercise your skills by applying them to a range of media including packaging, products, storyboarding for animation, comics, editorial and publishing, caricatures and graphic novels.
