Join Illustration Drawn to Digital and experiment with combining old and new technologies, bringing together the handmade and the digital.
You will start with handmade drawing, printmaking and mark-making and be encouraged to develop drawings and texture libraries.
By uploading work onto the computer you will learn how to manipulate your designs in Adobe Photoshop. You will learn how to clean up images, add and experiment with textures, as well as playing with the possibilities of pattern repeat and digital collage.
With the guidance from your tutor, you will be encouraged to explore the transition between these two ways of working to create projects that can be printed and manipulated digitally, but still retaining the hand of the artist. By working in this way you will be able to make digital technologies work for you, and gain the confidence to use these to support your current practice.

Suitable for those looking to keep the traditional methods of mark-making alive without abandoning the benefits available with digital methods.
