I apologize if there's already a thread about this but if so, my search abilities are weak and I would appreciate a redirection.
So, I decided that my major would be Illustration, that way I can do commercial work that would involve comics (which isn't really my main goal) and all sorts of similar stuff. You know, like what alot of lowbrow artists are doing. Actually no, I don't really know what most of them do outside of showing their work in galleries but that's one of the main things I want to do. Make a living off my art basically. The thing is Fine Art and Illustration sort of seems the same to me. The latter only seeming like it's for more commercial art compared to the former which seems more focused on just personal art. I could be wrong, but this is why I'm asking. What is the difference between Fine Art and Illustration as majors? What are the differences between the two professionally, as in where will/can I end up professionally? Do you learn different things? What are the pros and cons?
Thank in advance.
