Illustration by Helen Dodsworth.
Following on from my first Camberwell MA Illustration review, here’s the rest of the illustration talent that I spotted at this years graduate show.
Helen Dodsworth was featured in my first book, Amelia’s Anthology of Illustration. Since studying for her MA at Camberwell her work technique has changed greatly: her entertaining animal characters are now created using mono printing techniques. I particularly loved their expressions and the use of motion in her collection of poems for children, Fluffy Nonsense.
For Sweet Science Nick Alston produced a series of sweeping calligraphic illustrations that charmed with their simplicity.
Or how about a swinging beastie in a net from Susannah Elizabeth? Her Unseen, Taman Negara was rather engaging. Alas, she has no website.
Cruz Martinez Prieto produced a 3D installation to accompany her bird headed women.
Tuba Yalcinkaya‘s Strange Encounters consisted of fine pencil drawings with peach highlights: beautiful women vomiting birds with hair made of worms.
Made with simple ink washes, Suya Zhang‘s work was breathtakingly evocative and appealing.
Curious collage by Rebecca Hiscocks featured skulls melded with architectural features into fantastical beings.
Georgina Bing Han‘s dancing girls twirled around giant flowers in Passion of Poppy. She had also produced a clever cut out piece from a gardening book.
Don’t forget to check in with my first review of the Camberwell MA illustration show too!
