Illustration by Adam Avery.
At Glasgow School of Art Oona Brown‘s Bad Eggs considered how the pass time of collecting eggs is now frowned upon and considered stealing.
I was most taken by Adam Avery at Norwich University College of the Arts, sickness one of many graduates who have taken a Nobrow palette to heart. Introspection Out was a wonderful autobiographical book about his time spent in Norfolk.
The Mouse, the Bird, the Sausage by fellow graduate Rosalind Johnson was charming.
As were spooky images by Matthew Brand.
At University of Plymouth Joe Lyward featured some evocative line drawings to demonstrate a story, My Fear – about facing fear head on.
I was impressed by Josh Neal‘s colourful woodcut work, and he had a lovely screenprinted book on sale.
At Southampton Solent University the girl looking after the display *joked* that her tutor had nicked a prime spot with this nice animal poster.
Jen Hainsworth had made this delightful print of a woman.
The central table was laid out with a whole range of delights.
At Edinburgh College of Art my eye was caught by a little scratch n sniff book by Laura Clare Davis.
I’d missed a few from my earlier Westminster University blog, so here they are: Follow Anyone by Samuel Hawkins may not have entirely got the point of twitter, but he wasn’t the only one making a commentary – it was a popular theme this year.
Natacha Malkin‘s Red Feather was a lovely loose bit of fashion illustration.
