I don’t just draw pictures. I tell stories.
You rarely go anywhere without your sketchpad. But if you’ve been wondering where your talent for expressing yourself visually can take you, think about a career as a professional illustrator. There’s an opportunity for creative thinkers with the technical skills to communicate ideas through painting, drawing, and design in markets including publishing, advertising, and the web. You'll work hard, but you'll reap the rewards of that effort as you see your ideas take shape and come to life. If you’re ready to commit yourself to your craft, the place to start is here. Illustration will find you surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively driven students. And you’ll be taught, challenged, and pushed by experienced faculty* who’ll also support you every step of the way. It won’t be easy. But it could be the best decision you ever made.
*Credentials and experience levels vary by faculty and instructors.
