The main objective of the Illustration course is to develop, through short spanned exercises, the students’ skills for graphic expression, as well as their capacity to interpret an idea or text for drawing (illustration). Throughout the school year exercises will deal with the concept of the original, as well as with editing and publication. The creation of images in different techniques explore the relations between image and text and each student’s capacity for interpretation. Working in various contexts of illustration (postcard, poster, book cover, magazine) clarifies the specific demands of each one of these situations. Analysis of various publication formats (illustrated album, fanzine, book-object) will help to adapt each student’s portfolio to the characteristics of one of these hypothesis.
