Studio 3: Crafting Narrative
This particular studio examines the technique of telling stories through the craft of illustration, to support students in creating illuminating sequential imagery and visual worlds both fictional yet authentic; the diversity associated with this type of illustrative practice affords witty, thought provoking, controversial, challenging, socially aware and commercial interpretation.
Traditionally, the use of sequential imagery is undoubtedly a practice within design that offers the most significant opportunities for authorship, an opportunity to enable a personal journey in conceiving an imagery tale, a personal expression of choice as creator and author. This studio enabled our students to narrate and nourish their imagination through the orchestrating of their own storytelling: a practice that enabled an opportunity to explore visual language through elements of pace, suspense and rhythm.
Our students were tasked with being constantly observant, engaging and culturally and socially aware through a breadth of themes incorporating pictorially storytelling and Episodic memory, Anthropomorphism, Pareidolia, Paranoia Critical method, Surrealism, Freudian Psychoanalysis, Fairy Tales, Freudian Psychoanalytical (Psychosexual) theory, Cautionary tales, Neuroesthetics, etc., profiling a range of literalist’s, authors, illustrators, photographers and psychologist including Ronald Searle, Harry Clarke, Edgar Allan Poe, Marcel Duchamp, Martin Parr, Salvador Dali, Alan Moore, Bruno Bettelheim, Angela Carter, Brothers Quay, Jan Svankmajer, etc.
Level 5 & 6 students were also invited to develop collaboratively with national competitions including the Serco Prize for Illustration (London Transport Museum and the AOI) and V&A Illustration Awards 2014, all with outstanding results.
