I believe Illustration is one of the most fascinating branches of design, a discipline that achieves beauty in using artistic means to solve a problem. As a professional in this field I enjoy sharing my experience with the next generation of professionals. Starting with an overview of traditional and contemporary Illustration, and proceeding with analysis of the fundamentals of the discipline, the students will acquire the professional instruments to channel their own unique talents. Supervised exploration and discussion will help direct the students' creativity towards the the realization of distinctive personal projects.
