Amelia’s Magazine | University Arts Bournemouth: Dot to Dot Illustration Degree Show 2013 Review

Snarfle at Dot to Dot
The illustration degree course at Arts University Bournemouth held their stand alone Dot to Dot graduate exhibition in mid July at The Rag Factory just off Brick Lane. I visited during the day, accompanied by Snarfle, who loved running around the big white galleries and attracted the distracting attention of a young man who chased us around the show, waffling at me about babies and his imminent arranged marriage even when I very politely explained that I was trying to work: I think fatherhood must have been on his mind but it did make it rather hard to concentrate. Maybe some people just don’t really believe it’s possible to be a mother and work at the same time: well hey, I’m the living proof.

Watercolour plate stack by Becca Corney
Becca Corney - tom yum
First mention must go to the super talented Becca Corney, whose lovely watercolour plate stack attracted a great deal of admiring attention when I posted it on instagram (and led to an invite to be involved in an upcoming exhibition). She then contributed another lovely food illustration to my review of The Art of Dining event at Fenton House. Get involved graduates: this website is a brilliant place to showcase your work! Becca’s great love is food and she has produced a wonderful illustrated recipe book called Plateful that you can find here.

Lettuce Celebrate by Jeanette Slade
Following on with a food theme, I enjoyed pun-tastic images such as Lettuce Celebrate by Jeanette Slade.

Maggie Thatcher decorative paper plate by Emma Harrison
This Maggie Thatcher decorative paper plate is by Emma Harrison, who specialises in idiosyncratic portraits of famous people.

Emily Gilbert Bournemouth
Emily Gilbert‘s surreal monochrome landscapes are created in simple washes of black ink: see if you can spot the tiny figure in the centre of this one.

Little worlds, by Hannah McIntyre
Hannah McIntyre world inside a bottle
These colourful alternative worlds by Hannah McIntyre are absolutely wonderful.

Patrizia Imozzi - monster stirring a cauldron
Patrizia Imossi created this cool monster stirring a cauldron.

Snake by Mat Waudby
Man riding in a shark kayak. By Mat Waudby
I thought iconographic paintings on slabs of wood by Mat Waudby were really rather marvellous, including a snake and a man riding in a shark kayak.

birds by Katie Macon
bird business cards by Katie Macon
I do love all these birds by Katie Macon, and I particularly love her brilliant handmade bird business cards, each featuring a cheeky character.

Lydia Hannah Thomas - lady wearing fruit on her head
Lydia Hannah Thomas‘s lady wears a wonderful basket of fruit on her head

Becca Paterson fabric
This fabric design by Becca Paterson was inspired by a love of thrifting.

Francesca Calabrese
Francesca Calabrese put colourful photographic collages on shiny glass.

Anna McNee
Anna McNee used pen and ink to create detailed decorative illustrations inspired by the British countryside.

Felted glow worm character to go with a children's book by Becky Hill
This felted glow worm character features in a children’s book by Becky Hill.

Hannah Jane Nicolson
Hannah Jane Nicolson is inspired by the oddities of her surroundings – here a plethora of woodpeckers hammer away in a strange little forest.

Louis Wood
Louis Wood had created a series of strange creatures fit for a folk tale. I can imagine these beguiling beings intriguing a child.

Wanted posters by @jaybarnham
These fun ‘Wanted’ posters are by Jay Barnham.

Kate Bishop of Kroma
Kate Bishop of Kroma 2
Kate Bishop of Kroma had fun with shapes and luscious combinations of colour.

laurel turner
Laurel Turner stitched over photographic screen prints to unnerving effect.

Pom Pom lady by Harriet Schofield
This Pom Pom lady by Harriet Schofield showcases a beautiful style that would be well suited to fashion illustration.

Fay Huo
Finally I shall finish off with a selection that caught my eye at both New Blood and Dot to Dot. Above is a close up of bizarre but beautiful artwork by Fay Huo – in which she analyses the role of phobias.

Jonny Clapham potion master
Jonny Clapham zoo
Jonny Clapham bee parade
mascots dotted around the walls of the Rag Factory jonny clapham
This pixelated Potion Master is by Jonny Clapham, whose idiosyncratic computer game inspired artworks really stood out as unique and utterly unlike anything else I have seen of late. He was also responsible for the simple but fun Dot to Dot mascots that were ‘dotted’ around the walls of The Rag Factory.

Elliot Coffin
This neon screen printed man is by Elliot Coffin.

Marina Muun new blood
marina muun
Glorious subtle work by @marinamuun
Finally, I had no idea that the illustrator Marina Muun was still at college! She already has a super professional presence in print and online (I’ve been following her on instagram for awhile) and creates the most marvellous and instantly recognisable illustrations. For her degree show she concentrated on a subtle range of colours to create surreal worlds populated by elongated ladies and prehistoric plants.

Overall Dot to Dot was a brilliant show, and one of my absolute favourites from the whole of the 2013 season. I have no doubt that many Bournemouth illustrators will do well over the coming years.

Amelia’s Magazine | New Designers 2013 Illustration Review: The Best Graduate Illustrators

EdieOP Jonah the Fish cat
I’ve brought you my New Designers part one reviews, my review of New Blood and multiple blogs covering the Free Range Art and Design shows… so now it’s time to finish my coverage of the graduate group shows with New Designers part two (in two sections, naturally). This first blog will cover the best of the illustration I discovered.

EdieOP Jonah the Fish cover
Jonah the Goldfish by edie op
UCA Maidstone took a stand at the show at the last minute, so I was excited to see work by Amelia’s Magazine contributor Edie OP, full name Edie Owczarek-Palfreyman. She had created a wonderful story called Jonah the Goldfish which follows a little girl who wins a fish at a fairground and forgets to feed it, resulting in drastic consequences.

Joanna Keys at uca maidstone
Joanna Keys naturists
I loved the incredibly fun work from her fellow student Joanna Keys, who lifted the lid on the strange world of naturism. Who can resist this cheeky image of naturists at the hairdressers!

Rochester High Street on fabric by Lucy Parris at uca maidstone
This lovely depiction of Rochester High Street was created on fabric by Lucy Parris.

Georgia Elliott Thanet uca maidstone
Georgia Elliott chose Thanet as the theme of her beautifully bound book, which you can buy from etsy here. Since Snarfle‘s grandad lives in Thanet I have become very well acquainted with this beautiful and idiosyncratic part of the Kent coast, so it’s lovely to see it immortalised in this way: above are some famous shopfronts from oyster loving Whistable.

Moths by Natalie Faith Turner
Natalie Faith Turner investigated the beauty of insects, including moths and bees.

bird by Bea Forshall at falmouth uni
Falmouth University always has a strong selection of work, which was on show at both D&AD New Blood and New Designers; I’ll be covering all my favourites on here. This delightful bird is by Bea Forshall, whose work is informed by a lifelong love of animals.

young audience by Michelle Beech
Michelle Beech Falmouth
This delightful outdoor scene and delicate reclining lady are by Michelle Beech.

Lara Hawthorne - the Python Wife
Lara Hawthorne - the Python Wife
Stylised animals such as cats were prevalent in decorative illustrations by Lara Hawthorne. These fab images are from a project called The Python Wife.

Hannah Tolson - La Fiesta Gracia
Hannah Tolson swanpool reserve
I love the lush orange colours of this book cover design by Hannah Tolson. She also documented the changing seasons of locations in Falmouth to create beautiful images such as the one above.

New Blood design show 2013-patrick atkins
Bold monochrome illustrations by Patrick Atkins caught my eye at both exhibitions. His Vessel project – part of which can be seen above – documents the idea of rebirth in graphic novel style.

Lily Louise Scott at falmouthuni
Lily Louise Scott
There were some really sweet narrative characters in designs by Lily Louise Scott. I particularly like this close up of a scene with a bear.

karma sutra action by Martha Anne
karma sutra by Martha Anne at falmouth uni
This fab rendition of the Karma Sutra is by Martha Anne, whose decorative style of narrative illustration is just my kind of thing.

Where Does My Cat Go? By Emily Knight at cambridge schoolofart
Also by Emily Knight at cambridge schoolofart pottery cat plant pots
This was part of a series titled Where Does My Cat Go? by Emily Knight at Cambridge School of Art, who also made these lovely pottery cat plant pots.

Olivia Rose at cambridge school of art girl
Olivia Rose at cambridge school of art
These beautiful but slightly spooky girls are part art nouveau, part anime, by Olivia Rose of Lalasdreambox.

Fashion editorial collage by Sophie Wilcox at nottingham trent
Fashion editorial collage by Sophie Wilcox at Nottingham Trent University is smart and alluring – it’s a shame I can’t find her anywhere on the web.

Mask by Jake Pardoe
This mask by Jake Pardoe is from a project called The Box of Changing Faces, based on an investigation of how people recognise the human face.

Honeysuckle linoprint by Katie Beavis northbrook college
Lastly, a love of William Morris is evident in this graphic honeysuckle linoprint by Kate Beavis at Northbrook College, intended as cover art for Cider with Rosie.

Amelia’s Magazine | New Designers 2014 Review: Best New Illustration & One Year On Textiles

New Designers Adam Corns 2
Illustration by Adam Corns.

I sadly missed the first weekend of New Designers this year, but I made it to the second weekend and made a beeline for the illustration degree and graphic design stands.

New Designers Horses Josephine Birch
I began with the Cambridge School of Art stand, which is always one of the strongest in show. These characterful horses are by Josephine Birch.

New Designers Francesca Esme Morris
I adored this colourful patterned work by Francesca Esme Morris.

New Designers Aleesha Nandra guitars
These wooden cutout guitars by Aleesha Nandhra feature lyrics and imagery from favourite songs.

New Designers 2014 -Jess Bennett
Jess Bennett updated Snakes and Ladders with her Space Race board game, part of a project to ‘make space cool again.’

New Designers Louise Hall- churches
Louise Hall was inspired by the churches of East London for her London Bells series.

New Designers hannah Kurz
Hannah Kurz created these truly stunning illustrations for a book inspired by Nordic folklore.

New Designers Ella Catt
This cute papercut card design is by Ella Catt at Nottingham Trent University.

New Designers Chris Worker
I was most impressed by the monochrome artworks of Chris Worker, who gives a modern spin to the art deco style of Metropolis. This rocket is part of a stencilled visual history of spacecraft and he also did some amazing tarot card designs. A really awesome body of work, do check out his website.

New Designers Claire Evans
I made a quick trip downstairs to check out the always impressive University of Brighton Design & Craft stand and discovered these samples of recycled plastics by Claire Evans, who explores new ways of working with used materials.

New Designers Holly Alexander
This interactive musical quilt by Holly Alexander blends new and old ideas together to encourage the act of storytelling.

New Designers 2014 -gordon gorilla
Hayley Moisley developed her Gordon the Gorilla character as a learning aid, with interchangeable facial features to create different emotions.

New Designers Amy Clare Barden
New Designers Amy Clare Barden crocNew Designers Amy Clare Barden croc
Back on the top floor I discovered yet more talent amongst the Falmouth University graduates. These awesome animals and the crocodile lift the flap book are by Amy Clare Barden.

New Designers Katie Ponder 2
New Designers Katie Ponder
Katie Ponder was the deserving winner of an AOI award for her From the Rite of Spring series.

New Designers Sessions Surf Shop by Joe Baines
Joe Baines created this eye catching identity for the Sessions Surf Shop.

There is something no nonsense about the way that Falmouth put their identikit boards together and bed down at both New Blood and New Designers every summer, but I would really love to see what the students could do with a stand alone show in London one year.

New Designers Jordan Wray at Plymouth College of Art
Over at Plymouth College of Art Jordan Wray depicted a host of fish in The Element of Surprise.

New Designers Katie Turner
New Designers katie turner foxes
Cute patterns featuring badgers, strawberries, foxes and mushrooms by Katie Turner would look great on wrapping paper.

New Designers Sam Thorne
Sam Thorne’s shouty lady is the best kind of optical madness.

New Designers Adam Corns
People on their iPads everywhere, and fabulous brights (see top of the post). There was some awesome work on show from Adam Corns at Birmingham City University.

New Designers Bunnies by Hollie Crooker
This tumbling pile of bunnies by Hollie Crooker is an astonishingly detailed bit of art.

New Designers award winner Matthew Alker
Over at UCA Farnham I was introduced to the award winning work of Matthew Alker.

New Designers Dogs, by Angelica Hood at UCA Farnham
These plush dogs with lolling tongues are by Angelica Hood.

New Designers Otro Mundo Libby Parra
New Designers 2014 -libby parra
I was immensely chuffed to be gifted one of the best things I found at New Designers; Otro Mundo, a beautiful limited edition risograph zine by Libby Parra, printed by Ditto Press. Her otherworldly creatures are bathed in a neon glow as they wriggle across the pages.

New Designers sparklymouse
New Designers sparklymouse face
At the end of my visit I just had time to visit the One Year On zone. This cheerful hoop embroidery is by Louise Jones, aka Sparklymouse.

New Designers Berty B
This great retro inspired textile design is by BertyB.

New Designers Neon weave
Angie Parker hand weaves these epic neon textiles; absolutely stunning.

New designers charlie mortley
Charlie Mortley’s galactic textile designs were used to great effect in upholstery.

New Designers rosie moss
And finally (phew) these lush figurative textiles are by Rosie Moss, who contributed illustrations to Amelia’s Magazine many moons ago.

Amelia’s Magazine | Kingston University: RARE Illustration and Animation Ba Hons Graduate Show 2012 Review part one

Kingston Rare illustration 2012
My graduate reviews are now running legendarily late – sorry, that’s what adding a baby to the mix does. But never fear I haven’t given up – there’s a crop of students out there worth celebrating and I’ll finish these write ups if it kills me! (and typing with one hand whilst breast feeding if I have to). Kingston University always produces some wonderful work, with many students showing exceptional skills in both illustration and animation. They also excel at putting together a professional show; not for nothing did they win this year’s Best New Blood Stand. At Rare in the Rochelle School this is what I found: part one.

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 - india rose harvey
India Rose Harvey seabed sensory toy
India Rose Harvey‘s Sea Bed Sensory Toys are designed with the needs of young people with unusual sensory processing patterns or limited mobility in mind. Her octo balls can be rolled, hugged or thrown and a play mat can be folded into a tunnel which provides an exciting and mysterious space for exploration. I think most kids would love playing with these!

hannah simpson barbican
hannah simpson barbican
Hannah Simpson has contributed to Amelia’s Magazine and also won a prestigious award from the V&A last year. She specialises in reportage and I love her recent sketches of sunworshippers and shadow lurkers at the Barbican. It’s good to see a graduate actively working off their own back – so many take the summer off and forget all about the need to keep their fingers in and find some paid work once they leave college.

Alice Wright Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier
Subtle paintings were made by Alice Wright to accompany the novel Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier, worked in muted ink to reflect the dark tones of the story.

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Simon Cheadle
Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Simon Cheadle

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Simon Cheadle
Simon Cheadle‘s display was a real attention grabber – a bright geometric arrangement of graphic objects in primary colours, accompanied by a take away sheet describing the art of How to Make Mistakes. These wobbly drawing tools were designed to encourage the embracing of errors in making art.

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Luke Overin
Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Luke Overin
Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Luke Overin
The Kings of Grey by Luke Overin was part of a visual exploration of the world of Pigeon Fancying. I love his photography too.

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 Rebecca Truscott-Elves
Kingston Rare illustration 2012 Rebecca Truscott-Elves
Rebecca Truscott-Elves has previously contributed some ace work to Amelia’s Magazine – her tiny but beautiful works of art were inspired by travels across the world.

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -kerry coulson
kerry coulson
Kerry Coulson‘s graphic style was applied to the story of Coriolanus in a picture book for kids.

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 Sophie Traugut
Beautifully described birds were inspired by the theme of home, from Sophie Traugut.

Lorna Scobie Bradley
lorna scobie fox
Lorna Scobie Baboon
Lorna Scobie is a very familiar name to me because she has contributed numerous times to Amelia’s Magazine over the past few years and it comes as no surprise that she has also won lots of competitions for her animal characters drawn in an immediately recognisable style: both appealing and a little bit frightening. For her final piece she both wrote and illustrated a children’s book called Bradley, which explores the theme of concealed or unrecognised talents. I love that she considered how it might work as an app – cross disciplinary work that more graduating illustrators should be thinking about – for this she won the inaugural Macmillan Prize Digital Award.

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Danielle Louise Watt
Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Danielle Louise Watt
Danielle Louise Watt‘s The Cult of the Only Child reminded me of why I want more than one. Here she presented a gold-leaf shrine for the ‘Divine Sibling.’

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 Suyeon Noh
Kingston Rare illustration 2012 Suyeon Noh
Wooly Way was one of the slightly bonkers stories by Suyeon Noh – she writes about giant sheep and a flying whale.

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Joe Mortimer
Joe Mortimer was Discreetly Continuous in his project exploring the transition from analogue to digital formats.

Kingston Rare illustration 2012 -Hannah Cullen
Now Here’s the Mystery! by Hannah Cullen explored science for children, so that they will be inspired before they even encounter it at school.

Amelia’s Magazine | D&AD New Blood 2013 Review: Best Graduate Illustration and Graphic Design

Bird man by Charlotte Cox at southampton solent screenprinting
This year the D&AD New Blood graduate show was held once again in a cordoned off section of Spitalfields Market. It’s a small space with hoards of exhibiting students crammed into the tight corridors, which can make it hard to manoeuvre around when it’s busy. Most colleges had as usual opted for a simple display on plain white stands, but one in particular had pushed the boat out: Southampton Solent had hand stamped the brown boards of their Wooly Bully Illustration show stand, providing an excellent foil to large scale screen printed work, handmade badges and a high quality promotional package. Amongst a sea of stands featuring A2 printed copies of students work this was a delightfully visceral experience. One of my favourite pieces was the bird man above by Charlotte Cox. They were also handing out invites to their stand alone London show, Solstice, at the Coningsby Gallery, but I was sadly away when it took place: I hope I’ll get an earlier invite next year!

Southampton solent book
Southampton solent book
These images are from a book that was hanging on the wall, illustrator unknown.

Southampton solent - Rake
This screenprint titled Rotam Vitea features alchemical symbolism and is by the enigmatically named Rake.

Elliot Kruszynski at Bath Spa Uni - Save the forests and the animals and the wizards
And from the rest of the show, here’s the illustrations and design work that caught my eye: Elliot Kruszynski at Bath Spa University wants us to Save the Forests and the Animals and the Wizards with this wonderful atmospheric print.

Austrian folk tale by Carina Dewhurst
I didn’t get an invite to the Westminster University standalone degree show this year, which is a shame as on the strength of their small New Blood display it looks like this was a particularly talented group. This beautiful illustration is based on an Austrian folk tale, by Carina Dewhurst.

Louise Byrnes
Printed textiles by Louise Brynes
This gorgeous abstract artwork is by Louise Byrnes, who also created textile designs that reminded me of the trend for splashy abstracts that was very prevalent at New Designers. Just lush, so lush in fact that someone tried to make off with the very print shown above whilst I was there!

Carmen Lynch environmental disaster westminster uni
Carmen Lynch was inspired by environmental disasters to create this threatening yet engaging image.

UCLAN
These cute animals are by someone at UCLAN – unfortunately I didn’t note who as there were no labels. Then the artist responsible tweeted me, but I failed to to take a note of her name then. If it’s you, let me know!

Lunchtime atop a Tree by Rhiannon Izard at plymouth uni
Lunchtime Atop a Tree features a trio of monkeys, by Rhiannon Izard, a paper artist and illustrator from Plymouth University.

Sophia Viney's ghost
Sophia Viney goes under the name Littleinkstain – I like her ghost, which is part of a story about a dark forest inhabited by pixies, created for the BimbaGirls Comic Anthology.

New Blood design show 2013-Saif Chowdhury
Saif Chowdhury‘s fantastical characters are inspired by Japanese video games and bizarre worlds – this image was created for a story about a child on a quest to find their dead father, whilst overcoming monsters and obstacles.

Children's book by Lucy Wooler at norwich uni
This colourful children’s book by Lucy Wooler at Norwich University was inspired by a Victorian morality tale.

Bumble bee by Tori Gray at Dundee
Behold, a humble bumble bee made of type by Tori Gray at the University of Dundee.

Marco Galloway abstract dundee
Marco Galloway researched colour theory to make this great abstract illustration.

Danielle Smith ceramics
These ceramics by Danielle Smith were inspired by mysterious tales of the traveller community.

New Blood design show 2013-Dictionopolis by jame wilson
Dictionopolis by Jamie Wilson at northumbria uni
Dictionopolis tells the tale of a city of words: this beautiful hand printed concertina book by Jamie Wilson of Northumbria University simply took my breath away. I wasn’t sure where to find him online, since Jamie Wilson is apparently quite a common name for an illustrator. This seems most likely to be his home though.

Flower print by Sarah Baskeyfield at Staffordshire Uni
Shells, pineapples & flowers by Sarah Baskeyfield
These hyper colour flower, fruit and shell printed patterns are by Sarah Baskeyfield at Staffordshire University, and were standout pretty amongst all the angular graphic designs on show.

Pottery ampersand by Helen Player at staffordshire uni
This giant pottery ampersand by Helen Player was created as part of a design brief for the V&A.

Dominic Kesterton at ECA
Dominic Kesterton at Edinburgh College of Art based these designs on the linguistics of a fictional seaweed picking culture.

Alex Tait at bucks new uni
Lastly these brilliant black characters are by Alex Tait at Bucks New University.

There were lots of other interesting things on show, but I’ve been writing (or am still writing) stand alone reviews about a number of illustration degrees, so you’ll find their best work elsewhere on my site.

*Many of these images first appeared on my instagram feed, where you can view my pick of design graduates and other inspiring finds as I see them.*

Amelia’s Magazine | D&AD New Blood 2014 Review

New Blood review 2014
This year the D&AD New Blood show returned once more to Spitalfields Market. The overwhelming emphasis was on work aimed at the more commercial sector of the graphic arts, with less colleges than in previous years choosing to showcase pure illustration.

New Blood Don't be a Dick
Straight away, I picked up a copy of the Don’t be a Dick newspaper by Shellsuit Zombie, offering some salient graduate advice in a nicely edited one page form.

New Blood Southampton type
Nothing was labelled on the otherwise always excellent Solent Illustration stand, so I tried to match up artwork to illustrators using their A4 hand out and nicely produced newspaper. It wasn’t easy! And even harder to locate websites in quite a lot of cases… The funky circus inspired typography above is by Laura Hunt. Dontcha just love the word funky?

New Blood southampton
Luke Baker is responsible for this gridlocked city scene.

New Blood southampton skull
Kirby Pyle made this skull and other wooden cut outs.

New Blood southampton stencil
Hannah Bartlett’s stencilled lady looks into her looking glass.

New Blood southamption grace williams
In the newspaper: I liked this abstract image by Grace Williams.

New Blood southampton emily wilks
Emily Wilks made this cool pattern of animals and foliage. We were not officially invited but I picked up an invite to the students’ stand alone show at the Coningsby Gallery, and asked former student Jenny Robins to cover the Wooly Bully studio work in more detail… to be posted soon.

New Blood Jennifer Humphreys
These decorative blue hands by Jennifer Humphreys at Gray’s School of Art went down a storm when I shared them on instagram.

New Blood Hannah Botma
Dinosaurs in bottles were held up by the ever popular bulldog clip method, by Hannah Botma at Edinburgh College of Art.

New Blood Caitlin Parks
I was most taken by this exploding bird from Caitlin Parks, part of a series designed to draw attention to the plastics found in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

New Blood troll lips
At the University of the West of England Holly Dennis made this arresting image: the word Troll collapsing over overprinted neon lips.

New Blood 2014 -Mark Cook
At Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design the designer Mark Cook had produced this very appealing poster of fish lures.

New Blood David Hill
This tram coming up a hill is by David Hill at Sheffield Hallam University.

New Blood Emily Elvin
At Edinburgh Napier University Emily Elvin explored sleep in this rotating paper sculpture.

New Blood  By Heather McCarthy at Sussex College Hastings
At Sussex College Hastings Heather McCarthy had created some wonderful cards and posters designed to promote foreign destinations.

New Blood Dream Good by Hilary Newman
Colour, type and pattern were used to great effect in this Dream Good pamphlet by Hilary Newman at Bath Spa University.

New Blood Hipsters by Jacqueline Fryars at Blackpool & Flyde college
These hipsters are by Jacqueline Fryars at Blackpool & Flyde College. So true… beards and tattoos… everywhere. I have to say though, that it’s not the greatest to discover one of my own tweets (and that’s all) when trying to track down a student’s presence online.

New Blood Sophie Heywood
The trend for all things handmade shows no sign of abating. I like this risograph print for Handmade Studio by Sophie Heywood at UCLAN.

New Blood Midwinter Mischief by Dawn Williams
I was very sad to have missed the Middlesex University illustration show (no invite) because a small selection will never give me a full view of the talent on any one course. At New Blood I was drawn to this wonderful Midwinter Mischief fold out book by Dawn Williams.

New Blood Kayleigh Pavelin
I also liked these strong images of an African wild dog and giraffe by Kayleigh Pavelin.

New Blood Gary Curzai
Typography by Gary Curzai was clearly inspired by traditional Indian signage, but his is a fresh new update for a modern world.

New Blood David Doran
David Doran from Falmouth University already has an impressive list of clients to his name. I’m not surprised, his colourful patterned work is extremely clever and hugely engaging.

New Blood Dream Alphabet by Lauren Humphrey
Lauren Humphrey has adopted a similar curvaceous outlook, rendered in an appealing neon colour palette. I loved her humorous Dream Alphabet.

New Blood Rachel Saunders- Let's Play PeePo
The sea air must nuture illustration talent. Rachel SaundersLet’s Play Peepo! features lots of fabulous animals and foliage.

Falmouth students are also notable for their hearty online presence: I always find it intriguing how students at one college can be so incredibly useless at self promotion, whilst at another they are all on top of it. Can it all be solely down to talent that so many Falmouth students are doing well professionally before graduation? Maybe, but it doesn’t hurt to put yourself out there, and the sooner the better.

New Blood Necklace by Kristi Minchin
This quirky and colourful laser cut necklace is by Kristi Minchin at Arts University Bournemouth, who had also created a bizarre greeting machine replete with waving hands. I will be covering other discoveries at their High Noon stand alone show in another blog post.

New Blood Annabel Davis cats
Daft but brilliant. Annabel Davis imagines kittens and cats as kings and queens.

New Blood Strange animals by Dan Widdowson
These strange animals are by Dan Widdowson.

New Blood Lauren Rothery at Plymouth Uni
Lauren Rothery at Plymouth University had created these pamphlets with titles such as ‘How to Interact Socially.’

New Blood Norwich uni
I really liked the little hand out sheets about artists at Norwich University of the Arts: a nice touch.

New Blood Oddities by Tim Blann
These oddities are by Tim Blann, who has an appealingly blobby style.

New Blood Chris Shuttleworth - Learn to Sail
New Blood Shuttlefingers Pitch a Tent
Chris Shuttleworth at Leeds College of Art made these eye catching promotional posters adorned with the slogans Learn to Sail and Pitch a Tent.

New Blood staffordshire dogs
Finally, I didn’t record the name of the designer behind these marvellous pink Staffordshire Dogs. Sorry!

The hall was buzzing on my visit to New Blood, and I thought it interesting to hear from one graduate that it was a great opportunity for her to meet all the other students she had been following online for so long. Times have changed! How wonderful that nowadays the most engaged illustrators can discover and friend each other from across the UK before they have even graduated. Just think of the potential work partnerships.

New Blood show review 2011 Dawn Cooper
Illustration by Dawn Cooper.

Shh, adiposity I know that the D&AD New Blood exhibition was held absolutely months ago… but I would rather play catch up than leave all this talent behind. And besides, this blog was all prewritten – I just needed to post the bugger. Here then are the best of the graphic designers that I found, with possibly a few illustrators thrown in too as it can be hard to distinguish between the two at times.

New Blood show review 2011-Dawn Cooper
There was some wonderful work at Bath School of Art and Design: illustrations for The Outsider by Albert Camus illustrated by Dawn Cooper produced some beautiful prints.

New Blood show review 2011-amy collins collin banana
I do love a bit of a wild card: at Loughborough University Amy Collins showed a purple hippo and featured bird from her Collin Banana Circus project – she hopes to go into animation.

New Blood show review 2011-Bertie the Ickle Pickle Bean
Carolyn Bayley‘s Bertie the Ickle Pickle Bean for a book by Rosie Collins reminded me of the simplicity of Simone Lia‘s work.

More coming up soon…
