So finally, we’ve made it to the end of the week! 23 visits to top art directors, publishers and agents, one hugely informative Illustration Forum later and students and staff can now head back home for a well earned Christmas break.
The final evening involved a few well deserved drinks in the bar of the Generator. Once the disappointment of how bad Nigel’s amateur magic actually was, the students attention turned to the Karaoke, while the tutors beated a hasty retreat…..
The team would like to thank all of the creatives who have generously given their time to talk to us about the work that they do. It has been fantastically useful for our students who now have a much greater insight into the industry that they will be entering in 3 years time. Thanks too to the students who at the end of a long and intense semester conducted themselves really well, asking great questions and for putting up with Nigel’s bad magic tricks and crucially for not forcing the tutors to do the karaoke!
Special thanks go to Tilly and Nick for traipsing around a London to the numerous visits. Also Sarah Hayes for her invaluable help in getting the visits booked. Many thanks also go to Rachel, Anthea and Anna in the Art Admin team for liaising with the tour operator.
