Best Degree Show Work 2007: Illustration

Understanding (detail) by Samantha Briggs, Camberwell College of Art
Following on from my post on some of the best photography we’d seen at the recent graduate degree shows, we’ve now picked some of our favourite pieces of work shown by illustrators. As you’ll see, there were a huge range of techniques and styles on show, not to mention big differences in scale: from Sawa Tanaka’s delicate rice paper prints, to Samantha Briggs’ enormous drawn installation at Camberwell College of Arts. Shown above is a detail from Briggs’ piece, Understanding, an axonometric drawing examining the atmosphere and familiarity of structured space (a supermarket), which took up an entire wall at the college.
