The path to professional illustration takes a lot of learning, a lot of hard work, and sometimes plenty of detours. This week, Jake Parker, Lee White, and Will Terry discuss the merits of the traditional four year art degree, the shortcomings of “foundations” courses at traditional colleges, and the importance of vetting your illustration professors. Can you get all the value of a four year degree in two years instead? Can you cut away the fluff from a college curriculum? There’s also a deep dive on the essential skills you need to display in your foundations portfolio.
Illustrators Will Terry, Lee White, and Jake Parker talk about illustration, how to do it, how to make a living at it, and how to make an impact in the world with your art.
