Digital Illustration seems to have drifted away - I am going to bring it back!

I am developing the curriculum for a semester-long class on digital illustration, grounded in the timeless techniques and artistic challenges of illustration - but taking the essence of creativity in illustration to the digital age. Students will be expected to have experience using traditional tools and media, and will therefore be prepared to use Illustrator tracing, vector drawing and Photoshop painting not as crutches, but as exciting new tools to push what they previously thought possible. There are smatterings around the internet on digital illustration, but I have yet to see a course that focuses on the power of Adobe tools to give an illustrator wings to fly!
