Children's Book Illustration Advanced

COMD 487


This course can be taken as a 2 credit elective or a 4 credit Senior Project. You must have completed Children's Book Illustration I, II COMD 345, 346 to register. This course will familiarize illustration students with the actual process of making a 32 page picture book. You will prepare a dummy with an original or adapted story, master sequential story telling, using techniques learned in the previous courses; sequential storytelling, creating characters with human personalities, with a surprising yet satisfying ending, a professional quality cover and inside spread finishes. Much work is self directed, the one deadline being a printed reproduction of the completed book. Critiques are group in the beginning and individual towards the end. The goal is to prepare a package- a dummy and sample finish-that will show an editor or art director you understand professional art requirements and production methods.
