If a picture speaks a thousand words, imagine the signification an illustrator could convey. Illustrators today are more than just a craftsman. They define visual languages and styles that traverse geographical and cultural boundaries. The illustrator is a visual decipherer of ideas and style. The content of the syllabus therefore covers a balanced education of classical art skills with contemporary idea development and new media; to enable the development of a signature style while improving the inherent artistic aptitude for illustration. Historically, an illustrator’s artworks are featured in books, newspapers, advertising, on packaging and other printed mediums. Today, the possibilities are endless as the demand for illustration opens up in animation, web design and interactive media.
