Illustration, anyone?

Recommended Posts

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 ; ;

I'm personally looking at multiple grad schools for illustration as a focus, but it's for digital only or mostly.

yes thank you for the reply! some program I look into are based on traditional materials, like the one Syracuse offers, and SVA. Schools in which area are you interested on the most?
