Drawing Words & Ideas


For our next assignment we will be using pen and ink to create what’s called an editorial illustration (click here to learn more about editorial cartoons, a similar endeavor though often politically motivated). Basically, you’ll be choosing an article that you like and/or feel is important, and creating an illustration to accompany it. I encourage you all to explore the possibilities of ink, using all sorts of different tools and methods of applying it to the page.

To learn more details of the assignment, see the handout. (And please note, we will not be using color in this assignment.)

Have some inspiration:
Ralph Steadman
R. Crumb
Fernanda Cohen
Edward Lear
Keri Smith
Joe Ciardiello
Marjane Satrapi
Jules Feiffer

Please feel free to add to the list!
