Illustration Trip to Liverpool

We got off to a new academic year by visiting the Magritte 'Pleasure Principle' exhibition at Liverpool's Albert Dock. Much fun (long coach ride though) and everyone had a great time. All v impressed with the new builds on the Liverpool waterside including a look at the new Museum of Liverpool.

Marble Runs

As well as faking Old Masters, the first year Graphics/Illustrators have been working on creating Marble Runs from paper and tape only. There were three criteria...... fastest, furthest and most efficient. Not sure what the third category really meant but prizes were awarded and much controversy created.

Faking Old Masters

First year illustrators

The first years have been busy reproducing old master paintings. Here is their version of Rembrandt's 'Anatomy Lesson of Dr Tulp'. Great work!
