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…..
Nine Falmouth illustration students were given an insight into how editorial illustration is commissioned by Maggie Murphy and Pauline Doyle at the Guardian Newspaper this afternoon. It was a fascinating visit and great to know that our Falmouth Illustration alumni from last year, Thomas Pullin, is still producing great work for the Guardian.

A level one Illustration trip would not be same without our annual pilgrimage to the Marquiss Cornwallis near Russell Square for an end of week drink to celebrate what has been a great study visit. Pretty much everyone was exhausted after a week of travelling around London but it was good to reflect on the visits that we had and also the previous day’s forum over a beer.
It also gave Nigel the chance to honour his promise to perform some very amateur magic which he duly did (very badly!) in fact he was certainly out performed by the 1st year’s very own prestidigitator Ben Prichard.
It was a great evening and good way to round the week off.
