Later in the day Sue Clarke took students firstly to Oh Comely Magazine and then both Nigel and Sue took separate groups to see Louise Power at Walker books.
Both were excellent visits. It was good to be reminded of how many Falmouth Alumni have been commissioned in recent years for the innovative magazine ‘Oh Comely’. Oh Comely is a lifestyle magazine. Each issue is based around a theme, something that our students are used to doing. This month’s theme is ‘Secrets’. Included here are some spreads from recent Falmouth graduate Owen Gent
Walker Books is the world’s leading independent publisher of children’s books. Louise Power is an art editor that has been working there for over twenty years and has had a long association with Falmouth Illustration. Louise gave a really insightful presentation about the process of developing ideas for a picture book for children, focussing on the development of pace and flow and character design.
Many thanks to Oh Comely and Walker Books.
