Kingston University: RARE Illustration and Animation Ba Hons Graduate Show 2012 Review part one

First round up of my favourite illustrators showing at RARE earlier this summer - including quite a few who've contributed to Amelia's Magazine: Lorna Scobie, Hannah Simpson and Rebecca Elves.

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.
