Led by internationally renowned illustrator, photographer, and comic book colorist Jose Villarrubia, MICA's BFA in Illustration fosters an understanding of the dynamic field today and urges students to shape its future. It prepares students to create work with a personal voice that resonates with contemporary culture. The curriculum, combined with MICA's emphasis on liberal arts, prepares illustrators who are both visually and intellectually literate and technically adept, with an understanding of the history of the field-which is the history of all narrative art.

Student Profile: Guy Moshayov '16

Guy Moshayov
When Guy Moshayov ’16 (illustration) was researching colleges online, he was attracted to MICA because students can “select courses without being confined to one major.”

The Israeli may only be in his first year at MICA, but he can already see how being at the College has changed him as an artist.

Most of all, he said the talented students around him, who have inspired him and broadened his perspective dramatically, continually amaze him.

“I learn fr om students around me as much as I learn from my professors,” said Moshayov, who served in the Israeli army and traveled extensively in Africa and Europe before coming to the United States. Moshayov believes these perspectives influence his peers, too.
