The field of illustration has expanded far beyond it's roots. It's no longer enough to have solid drawing skills and be good at one aspect of illustration. The modern illustrator has to be able to apply their skill across different fields and technologies in order to collaborate with various creative industries. They must also learn how to manage their workflow, clients, how to charge for their work... In short, the business aspect of the practice of a freelance illustrator. The course we run is designed to give you the required knowledge to become just that.

ABOUT THE MENTOR
With the huge changes in the industry comes a necessary shift in how we teach and prepare for this industry. The course at The Illustration School is built for and by practicing illustrators. This ensures that the knowledge and practice you get is both up to date and relevant to todays' industry as well as being based on real experience.
A typical class consists of demonstration of any given skill or technique followed by a brief to put this knowledge into practice. Just as you would in the industry, you'll get feedback on this work but no marks. You'll instead be asked to quote on each brief you receive and the feedback you get will be based on this quote. Again this means you get exactly what you'd get in the field.
