Brighton Illustration: Then, Now, After…

‘Brighton Illustration: Then, Now, After…’ 
opens to the public from: 18 January to 14 February 2013
at the University of Brighton Gallery at the Faculty of Arts in Grand Parade, Brighton UK

I was invited to show some of my Future Fantasteek! artzines as part of this exhibition, celebrating graduates and lecturers from the Illustration course at Brighton. I studied Illustration BA, MA and PhD there... back in the day. (Future Fantasteek! issues 7,9 and 13 bottom middle of case)

The show had various themes, I was in with The Storytellers along with some of my tutors from back then: Alan Baker, Justin Todd and Chris McEwan.


Excerpt from website...
Top illustrators return to Brighton.
A star-studded line-up of the nation’s top illustrators has come together for a unique exhibition at the University of Brighton. All of the artists either graduated or worked at the university and they include Sir Quentin Blake CBE, who illustrated Roald Dahl books; Raymond Briggs, who illustrated The Snowman book; and award-winning children’s books illustrator Emily Gravett.
Curators of the exhibition “aim to reflect on the diversity of work originating from the Illustration studios at Brighton over the last 40 years, celebrating achievements and highlighting the possible direction illustrative practice may take in future.”
