Amelia’s Magazine | Break A Lead: Masque – University of West England Illustration Graduate Show 2015

Jessica Johnson UWE 2
The illustration course at the University of West England once again showed as part of Free Range at the Truman Brewery. Here’s my pick of Break a Lead: Masque.

Jessica Johnson UWE
Jessica Johnson UWE parachutes
Imaginary brutalist building collages by Jessica Johnson were inspired by buildings in Barcelona and Paris. I also liked her space themed patterns such as these parachute rockets.

Elin Lisabeth Break A Lead
Elin Lisabeth explored a scratchy style reminiscent of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Break a Lead Camille Loftin UWE
Nice drawings from Camille Loftin focused on relaxed modes of contemporary study.

Jack Xander UWE

Jack Xander created surreal landscapes and creatures – loved his colourful explorer traversing a jungle beneath a volcano.

Aurore Swithenbank made enamel animals to features in her story of Nonoche, a polar bear in the Arctic.

Raphael Greaves UWE
I really liked architectural drawings by Raphael Greaves, but they were hard to photograph due to strange yellow lighting!

Millie Duffey 2

Millie Duffey made wonderful characters, both drawn and in ceramic form.

Niall Greaves

Simple but effective designs by Niall Greaves worked well in concertina format.

Sam Cox the Doodle Man
Sam Cox, The Doodle Man covered an entire room with his signature drawings, and he was indeed wandering the show dressed like this. Sam has produced work for an impressive roster of commercial clients, and I would love him to submit some work for my new colouring book open brief.

Josh Cook crochet
Josh Cook had fun upcycling crochet to create surreal faces.

Alex Christian UWE
There was lovely movement in these cavorting animals by Alex Christian.

Patterns block holiday UWE
And lastly I liked these patterns for a project called Block Holiday, artist unknown.

All of these images first appeared on my own my instagram feed: follow me there to catch my discoveries as I make them!
