Work Created in Concepts and Metaphors

The strength of many contemporary illustrations lies in a dynamic concept of metaphor. Through word lists, thumbnail sketches, and research, students expand their ideas to improve their illustration. Students examine art by renowned conceptual illustrators such as Brian Cronin, Seymour Chwast, Philippe Weisbecker, Brad Holland and Anita Kunz. Students create individual images as well as series projects with editorial, advertising, and corporate audiences. Color media and demonstrations are covered. This course encourages further development of both digital and traditional media as well as concepts, research, techniques, craft, and professional presentation.
