Eleven Falmouth Illustration students visited Pete Fowler‘s studio in east London this afternoon. Pete is an old friend of our 1st year course co-ordinator Tom Barwick, both having worked on comics back in the 90’s.
Pete gave up more than an hour and a half of his times providing students with his insightful view of the world of visual communication. His talk took us through his development from a fine art background through his time working for the Welsh band ‘Super Furry Animals’, his large scale advertising commissions through to his ‘bread and butter’ editorial output. A highlight was him talking about his interest in the craft of ‘making’ and seeing his vinyl toys, lino blocks, and fantastic wood carvings.
Thanks Pete, it was a great visit and we look forward to your lecture at Goldsmiths on Tuesday.
