Hot on the heals of the New Blood private View came the New Designers graduate showcase at the Business Design centre in Islington, North London. Falmouth Illustration have shown at this event for many years. This year mark Foreman was able to secure possibly the best location in the exhibition that we have ever had. The Falmouth graduates had put a lot of effort into presenting their work at its best at it showed. The work looked fantastic and as with New Blood drew the crowds in to have a closer look. Once again a number of major publishers and agents attended and made a point of speaking to Falmouth students. amongst them we’re representatives from Anderson Press, Templar publishing, Arena Illustration agency and Handsome Frank illustration agency. It was great to see some of our alumni attending such as Chloe Luxford, Liv Bargman, Clare Elsom, James Cottell and Kasia Dudzuik as well as the majority of this years graduating year. We hope that you all keep in touch. This show continues until the end of Saturday.

A great evening was had by all at the 2014 New Blood show in London’s Spitalfield’s market last Tuesday. The evening started off with the news that Fiona Rose Batey from Falmouth had won one of the coveted New Blood Best in Show Awards. This is a great achievement when you become aware of the great work coming from other illustration courses around the country? The atmosphere at the private view was buzzing with a number of significant art directors, agents and designers spending a long time looking at students work both on the wall and in dummy books. Really good contacts have been made at this show and Falmouth’s reputation for producing talented and interesting illustrators has certainly been enhanced. The show continues for today (Thursday 3rd July) and will come down on Friday. Get down to see it if you are in the area.
