    Course Description

    Illustrations show, communicate, tell, exemplify, reveal, demonstrate, anticipate, conceal, persuade, and, on occasion, even lie. This studio course consists of a series of discussions, guided exercises and thematically linked group critiques that allow students to touch upon the illustrative skills required for the Everyday City – form, scale, perspective, texture, emotion and intention in a spatial context. Both the early illustrations in cave paintings and the photojournalism and animations of today offer far more than an objective representation of a stable reality. This course inculcates visual, observational, and communicative skill sets and teaches students to translate conceptual thinking using illustrations as a tool to put forward visual and communication solutions. It also cultivates their vision, authorial voice, creative problem-solving abilities, and curiosity while translating ideas into forms.
