We are all students on the MA Illustration – Authorial Practice course at UCF, which was the first in the country with an academic focus on authorial illustration. Our course leader, Steve Braund, also initiated Falmouth’s annual Illustration Open Forum that has attracted internationally acclaimed guest speakers such as Dave McKean, Russell Mills and George Hardie. This exhibition promises to be the triumphant conclusion to an intense period of study and artistic exploration.
We’re a mixed bunch of creative professionals who thrive on creating work with emphasis on personal development and independent learning. We all have a common goal to create work with an authorial voice, while striving to generate our own projects, creating our own employment and working on our own terms.
