The Basics Illustration series explores key areas of illustration through a series of case studies juxtaposed with key creative 'basics'. Contemporary work is supported by concise descriptions, enabling the reader to fully understand the work being discussed.
"Sequential Images" is Mark Wigan's second book in his essential series of handbooks on contemporary illustration. Following Thinking Visually, Wigan identifies sequential image-making as a rich area of original and innovative work, which is leading the resurgence in the art of illustration.
"Sequential Images" explores the importance of an awareness of the design process and the creative interplay of text and image.
The fundamental lingua franca of the narrative image-maker is explored across a wide range of delivery platforms and media. The compulsive visual storytelling imperative is investigated through examples of work that employ intelligent experimental, oblique, beguiling, incisive, visceral and beautiful solutions. Pictorial narrative projects and exercises, a glossary of key terms, an essential reading list and a conclusion also contribute to the depth and richness of this handbook.
