If you are an art student thinking of illustration as a dream job (believe me, it is!) or a professional traditional artist catching up with the digital world, this course will be really useful and fun.
In this two months -a day per week- intensive course, we’ll take a look at the current trends in digital illustration (editorial, children’s books, apps…) and how to balance traditional skills with the last technologies out there. From scanning correctly the your to creating stunning digital drawings and paintings. From the illustration thinking process to succeeding at online promotion or making interactive images!
A little illustration challenge will be assigned every week to be reviewed in class the following Wednesday.
A sharp illustrator mind. Basic understanding of computers and Adobe products will help, although the basics will be covered too!
