This article considers the journeys of three postgraduate illustration students whose M.A. theses were concerned with storytelling. It considers the distinctive challenges to supervision these posed, including certain ethical and personal issues involved when candidates illustrate and write their own stories or the stories of others. Following a preliminary discussion of advantages and challenges posed by story design, the article considers ways in which complex issues surrounding story ownership and responsibility were approached in supervisory practice.

More about this publication?
  • Illustration is a rapidly evolving field with an excitingly broad scope. Despite its cultural significance and rich history, illustration has rarely been subject to deep academic scrutiny. The Journal of Illustration provides an international forum for scholarly research and investigation of a range of cultural, political, philosophical, historical, and contemporary issues, in relation to illustration. The journal encourages new critical writing on illustration, associated visual communication, and the role of the illustrator as visualizer, thinker, and facilitator, within a wide variety of disciplines and professional contexts.
