- How can illustrators best self-promote?
1. What might your audience be interested in? How could you relate your topic to your audience and their experiences?
My audience would most likely be art students, illustrators, graphic designers, artists and my followers. I think it would be neat if I could incorporate drawings/comic strips in this project, and make it seem more like a helpful tutorial than a paper that is going to bore readers. This would also make it more engaging for artists and readers.
2. Will this topic satisfy the purpose of your writing and research for this assignment? What should you keep in mind to make sure you are meeting the minimum requirements for this project?
I think this topic would satisfy the purpose of writing and research for this assignment. My comic strip or image-based post would fulfill the multi-modal portion of this project. For my annotated bibliography…I think a lot of my sources would be current art and illustration magazines, which are available in the media center of the School of Art. My illustration department head also has many issues of these, and would be a good person to interview for more information.
Are there any other audiences that would be interested in reading about this? Is a comic strip or text with drawings an appropriate form for the multimodal part of this project?
