While their fellow students were visiting New York Art directors a number of Falmouth 3rd year illustration students visited London to get their work in front of some of the top art directors in the world as part of their professional practice submission. Included in these visits was feedback from some very established alumni and also significant friends of the course, including Chloe Luxford, Lauren Humphrey, Jamie Edler, Amy Kitcherside and of course Sam Arthur from Nobrow and Flying Eye Books.
The students did an incredibly professional job of securing some great visits that included amongst others:
Wide Eyed Editions (Quarto)
St James Park Squirrel
Paul Gravett Talk at the House of Illustration
Many thanks to all of the professionals that gave their time to give such insightful feedback to the students. Here are some photographs from the week…..
A great evening was had by all at the 2014 New Blood show in London’s Spitalfield’s market last Tuesday. The evening started off with the news that Fiona Rose Batey from Falmouth had won one of the coveted New Blood Best in Show Awards. This is a great achievement when you become aware of the great work coming from other illustration courses around the country? The atmosphere at the private view was buzzing with a number of significant art directors, agents and designers spending a long time looking at students work both on the wall and in dummy books. Really good contacts have been made at this show and Falmouth’s reputation for producing talented and interesting illustrators has certainly been enhanced. The show continues for today (Thursday 3rd July) and will come down on Friday. Get down to see it if you are in the area.
