ILUS 331 Motion-Based Illustration

3 credits 90.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

The explosion of screens in our everyday lives has expanded the repertoire of modern illustrators to create motion-based illustrations that function in editorial, publishing, and advertising contexts. In this course, students will learn how to use digital animation tools to add motion to their illustrations. A combination of demonstrations, lectures, and workshops will walk students through basic time-based concepts including timelines, transformations, asset development, and rendering. In-class discussion and critique will encourage students to develop their individual aesthetic sensibilities, and consider how motion can support storytelling and visual communication. Projects will mirror contemporary illustration projects such as editorial GIFs, motion comics, animated web banners, looping adverts, etc.
