Welcome to Animation and Illustration

Studying animation and illustration with the ۰ͼ’s School of the Arts allows you to be guided to develop your own unique visual voice and externalise internal visions through a variety of methods and techniques. This can be achieved through collaboration with a broad range of students and staff with diverse fields of interests, hands-on knowledge of various process methods and fields of expression.

Amongst the work produced by our students are experimental works in print and film, sequential art, editorial illustration, character animation, visual poetry, concept art, model-making, collage, digital image-making and bookmaking (to name a few).
