Politics, art, children's books, cooking recipes, advertisements; everywhere you look, you see illustrations. Icons (think of the icons on your phone or on the internet) and facial expressions can also be illustrations. This course zooms in on different aspects of making illustrations.
An illustration can serve another purpose other than being an independent, autonomous work of art. Usually an illustration is linked to a written text, and serves to enhance this or to put it into perspective. It can also induce other thoughts and feeling from the viewer. An illustration can be a drawing but also a collage or a manipulated photograph. In these lessons, you are going to set out to investigate the possibilities when depicting current events in a smart, funny or amusing way.
How, for instance, could you represent the complexity of everyday news in an image that makes you think again, or makes you laugh? How do you combine text and image? How do you depict your imagination as effectively as possible? An illustration can relieve a heavy message, make a dull story light up, or even clarify a complex problem. By alternating drawing and painting materials, collage, or if you prefer, the laptop, you will explore different ways and means towards an idea, and perhaps surprise yourself. Your work process will be supported by examples from the practice of contemporary illustrators.
Under personal guidance you will learn to shape your own ideas. This can result in artwork for a self-fabricated story, drawings/paintings for a recipe book or even a series of cartoons or caricatures.
