Our 1st year llustration students arrive in London today for our annual trip to visit some of the best art directors, publishers, designers and illustration agents in the world. It should be an amazing week that will culminate in the illustration Forum that we jointly hold for our students and the LCC illustration students at the Elephant and Castle site. Lucinda Rogers, Mark Smith and Cyriak will be speaking at the event. Other visits that will be taking place this week include; Artworks illustration Agency, Nobrow, The Folio Society, Harper Collins, Transworld, Hodder Childrens Books, Arena Illustration Agency, Human After All, Egmont, You Magazine, Saatchi & Saatchi, Dorling Kindersley, Walker Books, Dorling Kindersley, the. Telegraph, Penguin Books, Dutch Uncle Agency. There is of course also a lot going on in the way of exhibitions at the moment. Will try and keep posting updates as often as I can.
There is a stack of news that has built up over what has been a very busy term so far and so I will start to feed this through into the blog in various postingsover the next couple of weeks so that we can get up to date.
