Work on display: Illustration
To be an illustrator is to be a problem solver, taking an idea from a client and turning it into something visual that can communicate in a visual world. From the outset, our students experience different aspects of an illustration practitioner’s daily life, working to tight deadlines and to industry briefs as they discover their own way of generating creative solutions to make hardworking pictures.
The projects seen within Illustration exemplify how the students have shaped their practice to work towards employment in one of the numerous branches of this exciting discipline. The subject matter is as wide ranging as it is cleverly handled and the stories they tell come in a diverse range of styles and mediums. Their personal authorship is what shines through as the students celebrate the kind of illustrator they have become.
With the incredible work being showcased in the exhibition, there is no doubt this year’s cohort will go on to emulate their predecessors successes, many of whom work with the likes of Scriberia, the New York Times, The Folio Society, The Guardian, and Time Out (to name but a few) or have gone on to land contracts with major publishers around the world.
