Falmouth students were privileged to visit the offices of Nobrow and Flying Eye books and Artworks Illustration Agency this morning.
Steph and Alex at Artworks have been seeing our 1st year students for many years now and as always gave up an hour of their precious time to talk to students about the illustration industry. The conversation moved between advice on how to approach clients to the roles that agents perform on behalf of their artists. We look forward to when The Artworks team pay us a visit back in Falmouth in the new year.
Shortly after 10 students were privileged to visit the the offices of Nobrow and Flying Eye Books. The co founder of Nobrow, Sam Arthur, has been a friend of the course for a number of years now, having kindly donated the original screen printing bed to the Falmouth school of Art about 18 months ago. He has also spoken at a previous Falmouth. Illustration. Forum and at Falmouth itself. A huge array of amazingly beautiful books were on display for students to peruse and then ultimately buy. Sam gave a talk on the origins of Nobrow and gave great advice to students about how to get their own ideas noticed. This has been a fantastic few years for ex Falmouth Students being commissioned by Nobrow and Flying Eye. Ex Falmouth students that have books published by In particular Flying Eye include; Bjorn Rune Lie, Bryony May Smith, Owen Davey, Ella Bailey and of course Kate Greenaway gold Medal winner Will Grill. Many thanks Sam for giving up your time….
On the way to Artworks I spotted these fantastic letterforms….
