Having developed an understanding of illustration techniques as a tool for communication, students now harness this knowledge to acquire experience illustrating for magazines, newspapers, books and other publications. In this subject, students produce a series of editorial illustrations in response to briefs that simulate real-world jobs. Workshops and practical tasks in studio sessions focus on different methods of interpreting written texts to illustrate them, responding to editorial illustration briefs, and professional time management skills. Students learn to respond to critique and incorporate feedback into their illustrative work. Students are expected to undertake visual research and critical analysis as part of this subject.
