POPCORN IS DEAD CORN – and illustration is not just a hobby.
Prof. Dipl. Des. Ilka Helmig
year of making
Creative studies are often considered very skeptical. "Illustration is just a hobby!" and "You will never get a job with this degree!" are just two examples of upcoming allegations.
My bachelor thesis shall undeceive and is intended to give an overview about the study and the daily working practices as an illustrator from the perspective of a communication design student with major in illustration in Aachen, Germany.
To show a broad spectrum of the subject there are also interviews, drawings and stories of other students,
entrants, professors and famous illustration personalities included in this work.
This book is addressed to skeptics of illustration studies on the one hand and to prospective illustration students on the other hand.
