As of late, a lot of my posts across all of my new social media outlet sign ups have been about homework. Most of those have been “What is trending in your major.” For me that would be illustration. Oddly enough that has been somewhat of a challenge. Odder still is I thought it would be easy to just google “Trends in Illustration” and have multiple listings of what is hot in gaming and movie illustration popup. To my surprise that hasn’t been the case. Long lists on non-ending expressionism inspired posts often with rude gesters and words scrolled across my screen. Frustrating to say the least. So was it me, was I looking in the wrong place, was I being to broad in my search parameters? Tighting my search down to “Disney Illustration, Lucas Film Illustration.” Didn’t help much either. Part of the assignment is new trending topics. My search was only coming up with news that was a couple months old. And I sort of understand why, new works in progress (WIPs) are kept extremely hush hush until such time the company feels that it is ready to start promoting the project. Finding new trending articles can be a challenge. So what do you google when trying to find the latest news in trending Illustration, I mean real illustration. It seems to need to have a very wide network off illustrators that are currently working in the field to see whats really new. But that is also if they are non under any current NDA (Non disclosure agreement) contracts, so even that can be a dead end. Not that it really matters unless your grade depends on it.
