Illest of Illustration was founded in the fall of 2006 when a group of Illustration students created a gallery show to further display to underclassmen a set of skills, talent, dedication, and the creative drive that goes into a piece of artwork. Known as Illest of Ill’, this art show has quickly become one of the most anticipated shows of the year. Student-run, the exhibition is also juried by world-renowned illustrators.
