Welcome to the official Falmouth University BA (Hons) Illustration Blog. We’ve been talking about doing this for some time now and we hope it will be worth it. The intention is for the blog to be an informal and simple way of connecting prospective, current, and former students as well as the wider public with what has become one of the most respected degree courses of its kind in the country.
The blog will remain distinct from our own course specific website and will focus on news as it happens on the course. There will be plenty of student work on show, news and reports on stay trips that have happened and are about to happen and updates on the successes of ex students and alumni. Students and staff will drive the content of the blog on a weekly basis while feedback will be welcomed from anyone interested in the course. Ex students in particular are particularly encouraged to get involved by letting us know what they have been up to since graduating.
The next 5-8 weeks are going to be a busy time for staff and students with assessments and interviews almost upon us, with a Level 2 study trip to Barcelona, mixed in for good measure. Hopefully in the next posting I’ll be able to report on what was a very successful Level One study trip to London that culminated in a really inspiring Illustration Forum (in collaboration with The London College of Communication) early last December.
