10 Things about my project 2, as a Illustration Student


Illustration is visual language present information that is widely used in modern life. In the age of technology, people prefer to use the Internet to read newspapers, magazines, to research a wide variety of useful information and to express individual point views on the Internet. Internet is a good  channel for illustration students upload our works in order to more people know our work. At the same time, it’s easy for us  find some resource inspirit our ideas.

Certainly,  illustration works are not be limited display on the paper and the form of a two-dimensional. As you know, two-dimensional forms of art have already can’t satisfy the demand of people. Artists are trying new ways of creation, in order to make illustration work is more fun and interaction with reader and audience.

As a illustration student, the challenge is not only how to use our drawing skill to display the story with deep meaning as vividly as possible to our readers or audiences who are the children or adults. But also it’s important to focus on social issues and breaking the traditional idea with our illustration works.
