  • Course description
    Introduction

    At Lincoln we consider that there are no specific practical processes or skills exclusive to illustration; rather it is intention and motive in picture-making which are the distinctive features of the subject. Illustration can and is produced in many ways, from orthodox painting and drawing to printmaking, model-making, digital imaging, collage, montage, photography and fabrics; and is presented in many forms such as publishing, magazines, web sites, animation, comic strips, and artists’ books. From a core philosophy that recognizes that the discipline of illustration is in a permanent state of evolution regarding actual methods of pictorial creation and production, the scheme of acquiring knowledge, attitudes, skills and practice is oriented toward the future whilst referencing historical contexts. The concept of narrative is what largely distinguishes illustration from other art and design disciplines, thus narrative, story-telling and sequence are key elements of the programme.

    MA illustration provides you with support and direction in the pursuit of inventive and creative ways of meeting the complex demands of the subject whilst simultaneously challenging accepted conventions within an intellectually challenging Masters environment. There is a balance between methodological and theoretical exploration of the subject that equips you with both practical and intellectual approaches to contemporary practice. MA illustration at the University of Lincoln is a studio-based programme aimed at graduates who wish to engage with the subject in a theoretical as well as practical way in the pursuit of an original "voice".

    In the first instance prospective students should send a selection of examples of their work as slides or digital images. If invited to an interview applicants should submit a portfolio of work representing their recent practice, and a synopsis of intention for their personal programme of investigation for a Masters award.
