Students waiting outside Russell Square for their 1st visit

9 visits have taken place since the last posting. These have included Disney, Egmont, Arena Illustration Agency, ‘Human After All’ (design group), Artit Partners, the Telegraph, Penguin Books, Dorling Kindersley, designer Matt Cooper’s studio, with Phosphor Agency and Walker Books still to come this afternoon.
Yesterday’s Illustration Forum at The London College of Communication was a great success. Catherine Anyango gave a great presentation of her acclaimed Graphic Novel interpretation of Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’. Ian Whadcock (who had travelled down from Macclesfield especially gave a fascinating insight into his own conceptual processes while Matthew Richardson delighted bothe Falmouth and LCC students with case studies of recent work. It was a incredibly valuable day. Thanks to all the speakers and also Paul and Stuart at LCC for allowing us to use the college’s facilities for the day.
I think everyone is beginning to flag a little but it has been a fantastic week and a great ending to the autumn term.
Here are some photos with more to come in future posts.
