UWE Illustration '08 graduating class


As promised, some links to this year's graduating class (this is not an exhaustive list - I've tried to put in people who actually have some internet presence, ie active blogs/websites, and especially those I've made friends with in the last year). If you want to see the show (and trust me its FAB!) above is the college show details although Illustration are also exhibiting at the D&AD New Blood (23rd to 25th June 2008, London) and the Coningsby Gallery ( 8th to 11th July 2008,London).

oh I remember that feeling, BUT you will be that good and if not better. 2 years is such a long time, to learn, develope, make mistakes, correct them and just LIVE art, gosh I miss those days, there were huge highs and lows.

you asked on my blog about Devon, we went to Croyde in North Devon, it's LOVELY busy with surfers, but very pretty and the surrounding villages are gorgeous too. If you go you must visit Saunton Sands, just stunning.

I have just popped over to your sister in laws web shop and blog its amazing. I read she uses a UK printer who prints with recycled papers and soya inks. I desperately want to find a good printer here in the UK, would you mind asking her if she would be kind enough to share her source, I know its cheeky, but I hope our work is different enough, that I wouldn't be stepping on her toes.
fingers crossed,
Mandy :)
