Do you remember those kids at school whose imaginations spilled onto the pages of their copybooks; those little magicians who could transfer themselves to an infinite number of alternate worlds?
Well, they haven’t stopped working their own particular magic and are about to graduate from the BA Illustration & Animation, Fine Art & Illustration and Illustration & Graphic courses at Coventry School of Art & Design.
Illustration Nation is the culmination of three years of exploration and discovery, as well as a whole lot of inking, painting, editing, designing and a fair share of long, late nights at a drawing desk or computer.
Every area of illustration and animation practice is represented in this show, so whatever you fancy — illustrated books and comics or animated drama — you are sure to find something that contains that sense of wonder that only illustration and animation can instill.
This year’s students should be appropriately proud of the range and scope of their work and we are confident that in the years to come, the illustrators and animators that you are introduced to in the Illustration Nation eBook will continue to contribute to this exciting and constantly developing area of creative practice.
