Week 11 in Review!

WEEK 11 Class Info

  • Date: 11/10/23: WEEK 11 Hopping off color theory, advertising, and the advent of digital illustration and how UI/Web Design affects the modern world we illustrators live in…We dive into NARRATIVE. Story compels all forms of commercial illustration and affects lighting, perspective, framing and urges us as illustrators to inject as much story into our work as possible to drive towards the Big Idea. We explore further subdivisions of the amorphous term, “commercial illustration” and explore how a single perspective can be used for several compositions, and how filmmaking techniques—from framing to script reading—are universal constants in whichever area of Commercial Art you choose to operate in.
