Illustrators are visual storytellers. They create symbolic images, narrative scenes, and conceptual pieces that speak every language.

On November 7th, the Illustration Department was proud to host Adam Gustavson as our guest speaker and demonstrator for the day. Adam began the day speaking about his life as a Children’s book illustrator (Simon and Schuster) and his gravitation to mural and gallery work. His publications vary from fictional tales to non fiction historical illustration. Some of his books illustrate the life of the Beatles before their fame as well as the rambunctious life of Alice Roosevelt. He also described his ability to bounce back and forth between oils and gouache and his love for creating fun small sketches that he features on social media under the hashtag #fereltown.
