Ever wonder what an illustrator actually does? How is illustration different from art and what is a brief? Maybe you’re interested in a job that makes use of your artistic or drawing skills? Illustration might be for you!
During this course, Daniel will share his experience of what it means to work as an illustrator and take you through some of the jobs and types of visual problem-solving you might come across. Participants will be given the choice of a brief to work on and given personal feedback on their work. We’ll look at some of the skills you can develop on your path to becoming an illustrator.
This course is ideal for students who are interested in learning about what it’s like to work as an illustrator and what opportunities are available.
Daniel Gray-Barnett is a freelance illustrator and children’s book author. Self taught, he has worked with a range of clients including The New York Times, Disney/Pixar, The Big Issue, Facebook and HarperCollins Australia.
What You'll Need
- an ordinary lead pencil or pen for sketching
- some blank paper to sketch on
- art materials to work on your finished piece, whatever you're interested in trying out or that you prefer to use. eg. acrylic paint, lead pencil, ballpoint or fine liner pen, ink, watercolour, pastels, charcoal, even coloured cardboard or paper if you want to do some collage.
- paper for their finished piece - if you have an art sketchbook or visual diary, this might be a suitable type of paper as it’s a bit thicker than copy paper for those who are painting or using ink.
- an iPad or digital tech if you are interested in creating that way
Optional: a scanner or phone/camera that can take images of your work
