Satiric artist and illustrator Steve Brodner guides you on a lecture/workshop adventure through the world of the strongest art in illustration. The greatest of all time will be discussed. And the greatest in you is encouraged. Individual attention will be given. The tools worked on in this course will be extremely useful in illustration, cartooning, poster and website design. Great periods in the history of political and socially focused art will be discussed, including the work of Daumier, Nast, Grosz, Art Young, Ralph Steadman and David Levine. Classic works will be examined for an understanding of what makes them tick. Interviews with current practitioners such as Peter Kuper and Frances Jetter will help illuminate the process. Every week will feature a quick project as well as help with a long-term assignment. Brodner hones your work in a step-by-step process from general to specific inspiration, while, at all times, holding to your ideas and passions and keeping your eyes on the prize. This course is open to all students. NOTE: This course is fully online. Students will enjoy learning with a combination of media-based lectures and live video conferences with the instructor and classmates. The (optional) online synchronous meetings are scheduled and are recorded for students to review at their convenience. Additionally, there are opportunities for asynchronous discussion with the instructor throughout the semester.
