‘I don’t just draw pictures, I tell stories and ideas.’

You rarely go anywhere without your sketchpad. But if you’ve been wondering where your talent for expressing yourself through visuals can take you, think about a career as a professional illustrator. In our Illustration Programmes, there will be a lot of opportunities for creative thinkers to communicate ideas through painting, drawing and designing in the multimedia art industry, and also publishing, advertising and web development industries.

Illustration isn’t a hobby. It’s a solemn expression of your artistic vision — and a possible pathway to a career where you can do what you love. And our Illustration programmes are just as serious. Many full-time faculty members who deliver the Illustration curriculum are professional illustrators. They not only teach the skills you need to compete but bring the real world into the classroom for you as real eye-openers and get you ready to enter the professional world. Under their guidance, you’ll study everything from Art and Design Fundamentals to Conceptual Illustration.
