  1. Hi guys, I'm an environmental design student from China. I applyed for Illustraiton MFA program and was accepted by SCAD (Atlanta campus) and Syracuse University. (I was rejected by SVA and on the waiting list of MICA) SCAD offered me $8000 per year as scholarship and Syracuse offered a 30% tuition scholarship. (which is also about $8000 per year) My goal is become a freelance illustrator and I really hope I can develop my personal voice and enhance my skills during the graduate porgram. I'm not sure which school to choose and there's not much imformation on the internet. Does anyone have any advice? I will be very grateful if you guys can help me. (Sorry for my bad English)

    Medical Illustration 2019?

    Hello! I applied to medical illustration grad school programs that start in Fall of 2019. Does anyone have advice on how to prepare for a graduate school interview for these programs? I've never had a grad school interview in my life and what to know how to prepare myself. Also, any timeline ideas on when I might hear back from the other schools? I have an interview at Augusta, and I applied to Hopkins, Chicago, and Toronto. Thanks! -Jordan
  3. Hi everyone! I was a little active on this forum in early 2017 during my first go-around at applications. Out of four schools I was accepted into one, but even with their offer of partial funding I still found it too pricey to accept, especially since it was only my safety school. So I decided to take a lengthy break from pursuing grad school, work on my portfolio and CV, and take things much slower and surer this second time around. Hence this new thread asking for everyone's advice Professionally I am mainly an illustrator but I consider this inseparable from my explorations in graphic design. I'm interested in how the two collaborate in the innovation of print/publication design, primarily in children's books, games, and visual narratives in general. Bonus points if the program touches on political activism or social practice. For these reasons I'm very attracted to Tyler School of Art's Graphic & Interactive Design program thanks to the student work on display, and University of Illinois's Graphic Design for its great-looking core faculty. I want to know if anyone on here knows of any programs I might've missed that match my description. I want a program that intertwines graphic design heavily with illustration, and would let me focus more towards print design. (I work with, and enjoy, web/UI design just fine but it's just not my calling!) I'm not entirely closed to suggestions of MFA Illustration programs, either; I've had my eye on Syracuse University for some time I'm a little bit wary of brand-name/for-profit institutions, but I won't be mad to learn if their vis comm/illustration program fits the bill. Thanks, everyone! Good luck on your own searches for the perfect school.

    MFA Accepted - Now What!

    Congratulation to all of you who have been accepted into your MFA program. My MFA journey will continue in Florence Italy. What are the things you are doing now to prepare you for the next 2-3 years? How do you go about your thesis research?
  5. I studied as a Visual Art student during my undergrad, and focused mostly on fine arts, but now I'd like to attend for MFA in illustration, which is not so related in fine arts. Do I talk about it when I mention my undergrad major, or should I add some sentences briefly to inform the viewers why I changed interests? and is it ok to say I'm interested in both and want to give up on neither?

    Illustration, anyone?

    Hello every body! Newbie here, I'm freshly graduated from university which my major is Visual Art, the long of learning more then I have taught has been bothering me for approximately 2 years. Plus Visual Art is not technically a specific enough category to stop at in my career, so I figured I'd like to apply to the illustration graduate programs on fall 2018. But here comes the question, I don't have any information for illustration programs besides the school websites and other internet stuff, I don't know what kind of portfolio to submit, I have oil/ acrylic/ digital painting/ watercolor/ charcoal, etc, but which kind of stuff I'd want to be in my portfolio in order to proof my skills?. What is the ratio of still life and actual illustration? My mind is full of questions that needed to be answered. So anyone is on the same boat or have been through all these can give me some advices/ struggle with me ? by the way, the schools I've came up so far are SVA/Pratt/Parson, is there any other great illustration programs around or inside NYC?, I've been heard a little about the illustration as visual essay graduate program in SVA. Do they actually that good? I wish I could go and check it out myself, but I live on the other side of the earth which is kind of inconvenient ; ;
  7. I'm busy doing reading for my research proposal which will eventually become an 8000 word dissertation with practical component. I am an illustration honours student. I am looking at Dream descriptions as narratives and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me, I also want to create illustrations (visual art, visual representations) (part of my practical component) based on these dream descriptions (that i gathered from other people). Which type of theories would I look at in terms of this sort of subject? And what sort of topics would help me narrow down my research scope enough? I have a vague idea that image and text is something I might explore, I also looked a bit into narrative theories of Roland Barthes. And i found a few good articles on dreams as narrative texts. I'm also not sure if my topic is maybe too broad, am I researching too broad? (I haven't gotten a supervisor yet as they only assign one after we gave our research proposal presentation)

    Disabled Rural Artist Looking for Help.

    Long time lurker, first time poster. The reason I am posting is because I keep trying to find answers but I have so many problems and hope perhaps someone else had a similar situation or knows of something I have not tried. I have a BFA with a concentration in Illustration and a minor in Graphic Design. When I was in undergrad every time I went to my adviser (who also happened to be the dean of the art department) about something I did not feel I was learning their stock answer was almost always "go to grad school." Me: "I need help with a website to showcase my portfolio and jobs in graphic design seem to require web design and coding skills." Answer: "Go to grad school." Me: "These internships I'm applying to seem to require more life drawing classes and a better understanding of human anatomy." Answer: "Go to grad school." Me: "Entry level jobs require a proficiency in the Adobe Suite and I also seem to need a knowledge of 3D rendering software." Answer: "Go to grad school." When I tried transferring no school would accept enough credits from the university I attended for me to complete a degree before financial aid ran out. My school had no placement office, no alumni working in their field, no job board, nothing... What is worse is that I am disabled. There are not many jobs I can physically do outside of my field. I have applied to over 400 jobs and only gotten two interviews over the last four years. To be clear part of the reason I initially chose the university I went to was location, which was best for my disability at that time, though I am confident I could go to a better school now. My income is limited and most goes to pay for utilities and rent, the rest goes to food and prescriptions. I cannot afford things like a better computer, higher speed internet, or software updates to teach myself these skills. Furthermore, I live in a rural community with no public transportation. I do not have enough money to purchase a car. I spent the last year looking into graduate programs that would best fit my situation. I came up with ten schools I wanted to apply to. Of those only two waived my application fee and a third implied they would only charge me after making a decision. Right now it appears I did not make the cut for any schools. I have gotten two rejection letters and the third school has called other people for interviews but not me. I do not have the money to go to a residency program or to earn a second bachelors degree. The community college only offers the most basic level of classes in drawing and painting, nothing involving computers. Part of the reason graduate school is appealing is my limited income would not be as big of a factor since I can still receive financial aid for a higher degree and most universities have policies that help disabled students find work they are capable of doing for extra income. Even if I could find money I wonder if residency programs are required to abide by the ADA or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act? For laymen, those are the laws that say you must accommodate a disability. Residency programs don't seem to receive federal or state aid, which indicates to me they probably do not need to follow these laws. Normally I try to avoid asking for accommodations whenever possible, but just having the option in case something potentially dangerous presents itself means a lot to me. This is also my biggest fear about studying abroad, since most countries do not have an equivalent to the U.S.'s ADA. Please understand I wanted to try and keep this as anonymous as possible because these are not things I try to broadcast about myself when I apply for work or schools. Because of this I would rather not share a portfolio or more specific information publicly. If you seem confident that you could help me find a solution but need to see some of my work, please send me a private message. As I just said these are difficult topics for me to discuss so try to refrain from rude or condescending comments, I am trying my best to make something out of my life and frankly I am scared.
