Overview

The Fundamentals of Illustration 2nd Edition by Lawrence Zeegen introduces students to the subject of illustration, taking them through the key skills and practical processes required for the study of this exciting degree course.

This edition has been updated with a wealth of fresh visuals and contemporary case studies. It includes new and revised content and examples that reflect the changes and developments in the discipline over the past few years. Current visual approaches are examined and evaluated, along with new chapters on visual thinking, idea generation and the illustrator as an artist.

A chapter on the professional practice of a freelance designer helps students to understand the realities of this creative career path.

Each chapter concludes with a case study, which outlines a brief and then describes each stage of the process, from the illustrator's initial response to the completion of the project. The case studies feature the work of: John Clementson, Tim Vyner, Olivier Kugler, Damian Gascoigne, Ben Kelly and Howard Read. The book also contains a series of interviews with practising illustrators such as Autumn Whitehurst, Stina Persson and Anthony Burrill.
