i went to the Brighton open day to look at the illustration course they to there. I really liked the wrk that they produced there as they showed a variety of different styles, and they didn’t just focus on book illustration. The course is very competitive with 832 people applying for only 74 places. I enjoyed brighton the city as well and i think i preferred it to Edinburgh as there are more people on the course and there seemed to be more collaborative work with both the graphics and illustration students. they gave a useful talk on interviews and told me that i need to think about:
- why do you want to study this course?
- influences (artists/illustrators)
and that i need to show:
- board range
