The Illustration emphasis is grounded in both traditional and digital studio techniques of storytelling, providing students the formal and conceptual base from which to express their ideas and communicate through visual art. The profession spans a wide range of applications -editorial, advertising, product illustration, graphic novels, scientific illustration, visual development for animation and games, children’s books, interactive illustration, and anything an illustrator can bring to life. Given the vast array of opportunities, today’s illustrators must understand how to communicate effectively with a chosen medium and situate their work professionally within a particular market.

Students in the Illustration emphasis receive instruction in conceptual illustration, digital illustration, rendering, perspective, painting, exhibition preparation, market research, professional practices, and both traditional hands-on and digital illustration techniques.
