The Source of Style: Using Visual Cues to Find Stylistic Inspiration

It's a common refrain among aspiring cartoonists and illustrators: "How did you develop your style?" As many pros will tell you, though, style isn't something that springs forth from the pen, fully formed. Stylistic influences come from any number of sources and media, and with a keen eye you can start to see those inspirations in other's work. Being familiar with many artists helps, but this workshop will introduce you to a few research strategies for discovering these sources, whatever your knowledge base.

Led by Stephanie Grimm

Friday, 5/1, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
118 Haymans Hall
