"An illustration is a visual editorial - it's just as nuanced. Everything that goes into it is a call you make: every color, every line weight, every angle.

"

-Charles M. Blow

In this workshop, through a series of demonstrations and guided exercises, students will learn about the elements of 2D design including line, shape, value, texture, space, and color. Students will complete a series of 6 simple illustrations, learning to explore their illustrative style through each element of 2D design.
