We will read and illustrate the novel Ready Player One, using the text as direct reference for our images in the tradition of illustrators of the 20th century. Class will be broken up into discussion about the reading and sharing our illustrations. The final wil be painting a cover for the book. We’ll also have a chance to chat with faculty and students from the art department about education and career opportunities for art students.
