Along with the graphic design show, Kingston’s BA Illustration & Animation graduates are also currently showing in London, at LBI in the Atlantis Building at the Truman Brewery. The show is generally excellent but here are some of my favourite moments…
First up are some macabre yet appealing illustrations from Joe Bichard. He also has an excellent animation showreel, created with Jack Cunningham, shown below:
Alice Hartley is showing this rather magical house as part of her display… A detail from one of the intricate woodcut sides is shown below…
Hattie Stewart has a number of brightly coloured, psychedelic-style illustrations in the show.
Rachel Lillie is showing a small installation of sculptures and illustrations in her Lived Fast Died Young Museum.
Rebecca Jay is exhibiting a selection of portraits, of both dogs and people, complete with witty one-liners.
Sonia Yekinni has decorated the rather boring display panels with a number of illustrated characters and letters, plus is also showing posters.
Ben Brown is showing an illustration, above, in the show, as well as animation which he made in collaboration with Alice Hartley (who worked on the background and also on the sound design) and Matt Dicks who created the illustrated Sonic character. The film they made together features Sonic The Hedgehog, gradually losing his mind to boredom in a laundrette. Here it is:
The Kingston Illustration & Animation show will be at LBI until June 21, and will also appear at D&AD New Blood from June 24-28. Details on all the work featured can be found here.
