Degree shows 2011: Brighton Illustration
B is for Brighton. We always look forward to Brighton's Illustration degree show as the college seems to have a knack for producing talented graduates. This particular illustrated B was created by Brad Jay specially for the course degree show which is coming to London's Rochelle School near Brick Lane from July 8-12. Here's our pick of this year's bumper crop of illustration talent.

Illustrator Harry Bloom's work is super. Above is a piece entitled Lo-Fi, and below is his Battle Of Britain triptych.
Also loved his Teenage Kicks series of illustrations invariably showing a teenage couple having a snog. Wherever they may be.

I am in love with Brad Jay's illustrations, so detailed and catchy, well done Brad! I have been recently to UAL, Camberwell College of Arts and really liked Alina's 'Fabulas' bold print patterns which she uses to adorn products, such as cushions and chairs, and a recent wall designs in Elephant and Castle, London.
