Sooooo I finished my BA (Hons) Illustration degree!!! We got our last mark today and are awaiting the final mark for the whole course that we’ll get in two weeks. I did pretty well for my last one, so I am very happy. And then there is the Awards Ceremony at the end of July when I’ll get to wear one of those fancy square hats and a robe. It’s gonna be grand.
But yeah, I think I can officially call myself an illustrator now. Of course there’s lots to do still since we have two degree shows coming up. The first one is at our campus, Bower Ashton in Bristol, and the private view is tomorrow night; Friday June 6th, 6 - 9 pm! You are very welcome if you live anywhere near it, and please don’t be too shy to come up and say hello to me. After tomorrow night the opening times are Sat 7th - Sun 8th: 10am - 6pm, and Mon 9th - Thurs 12th: 10am - 8pm.
If anyone has wondered where I went this is what completely consumed my life the last couple of months or so. There has been a distinct lack of sleep and a lot of stress, but it has also been fun and I have learned a lot and really pushed myself hard. When I’ve rested a little and celebrated there will be more tumblr updates with new art I’ve done!
