This advanced portfolio course is a fast-paced opportunity to experiment with different applications of style and approach for editorial illustration. Students will produce images based on manuscripts and real assignments. The goal is to turn ideas into sketches and sketches into finishes by truly evolving as an artist in concept, method and craft. A professional portfolio is a vital tool for an illustrator, not only to present for assignments, but also as a personal, ongoing documentation of production and evolution. Participants will create work for various topics under true market conditions. Ideas and sketches will be analyzed and then sharpened prior to creating finished pieces. These exercises will explore individual technical and conceptual interests while looking toward a professional direction.
