BFA Illustration at School of Visual Arts - Department Overview 02:01

At SVA, we believe that an illustrator’s career can be as limitless as his or her imagination. We always encourage ambitious thinking—the innovator, not the imitator. We not only inspire and encourage a student’s imagination, but also teach the art of interpretation: the ability to carefully read and cross-reference texts, research visual styles, and conceptualize and produce significant bodies of work. Thomas Woodruff, Department Chair- Narrator Chris Jessick, Alumni- Director, Editor, Cinematographer Justin Noto, Alumni- Creative Producer Brett Kodama, Student- Editor, Cinematographer Ben Duffy, Student- Cinematographer Original Score by Justin Talbott *All artwork produced by SVA students
