Abstract / Summary

An Annual Illustration Forum, which forms part of the Level One BA Illustration London study trip.

The rationale of the study trip is to broaden the student’s understanding of what Illustration is and to provide insight into the illustration industry from the perspective of art directors and illustrators, across all fields of illustration. Industry visits provide insight into how art directors operate across different contexts and platforms and the Illustration forum provides insight into different kinds of Illustrators, their varied creative journeys, and the breadth of challenges offered to them through the discipline.

The rationale behind the 2015 forum was to reflect the diversity of the discipline through the work of three very different Illustrators. Each Illustrator represents a different field of illustration and has very different commercial challenges and outputs. They each demonstrate different ways of thinking and visually communicating ideas, and approach the subject from a different philosophical stance. Between them, they also highlight the importance of the key skills underpinning all module work developed by the students in the semester preceding the trip, notably visual problem solving and drawing/media as important vehicles for personal expression. This was an important factor in the rationale, as the forum and trip falls at a critical time of reflection for the students, so is instrumental in helping them evaluate and consolidate their first term of University in a meaningful way.

The speakers included Olivier Kugler, Jonny Hannah,and Aude Van Ryn (all prestigious award winning contemporary Illustrators).
