This volume's cutting-edge essays, interviews, and course syllabi provide the first-ever blueprint for teaching and practicing the dynamic art and craft of illustration.

This revolutionary book fills a practical and an intellectual void for educators, students, and professionals in the field of illustration. Based on interviews with top illustrators and teachers, the book discusses how professionals acquired their illustration know-how and went on to apply it in their careers. Also explored are model illustration education curricula—for both undergraduate and graduate levels—created by leading illustration educators and practitioners. Offering a diverse range of attitudes, philosophies, and visions, this book is the first to address pressing issues confronting education in the illustration arts, including such concerns as authorship, new media, and the marriage of illustration and design. 60 B&W Illustrations

From the Inside Flap:

The Education of an Illustrator

“The process of drawing can unlock the entire creative process for an artist. As children, we all used drawing to relate to the world around us. We were not trying to make art. We were trying to make sense out of the world we were experiencing. We told stories in pictures. . . . The vocabulary of the illustrator has to be expanded into authorship.”

—Marshall Arisman, from the introduction

Editors Steven Heller and Marshall Arisman have assembled thirty leading practitioners and thinkers of the illustration and graphic design fields in this first-ever blueprint for teaching and practicing the dynamic art and craft of illustration. This compelling collection of essays, interviews, and course syllabi provides readers with first-hand accounts from various professionals and educators who discuss how they acquired their knowledge of illustration and have successfully translated it into their careers. Part manifesto, part instruction manual, this revolutionary blend of knowledge and practice provides students, teachers, and practitioners alike with an indispensable resource on the teaching and usage of illustration today. Included are twenty-five cutting-edge essays; interviews with Milton Glaser and Thomas Woodruff addressing both the concept of holism and the interconnection between fine arts and illustration; and a diverse and stimulating selection of course syllab! i and curricula designed for both undergraduate and graduate students.
