I went to D&AD's New Blood show in London, and although we squeezed the trip into just one day, it as a lot of fun. I mainly paid attention to the other university's illustration work - there was a lot of really brilliant stuff there. My three top favourites were Emily Rose Lambert, Little Ink Stain and Elliot Kruszynski. I also really enjoyed the work by Hayley Chan, Louise Byrnes, Kate Alizadeh and Ella Bailey. Please do check them out! I found a lot of their stuff super-inspiring and original. Worth going just to discover their work.
Here's some photos I got on the day ~
Here's UCLan's Illustration section ~
Can you spy little Leo? :)

I was highly honoured to have my Ukulele Bear painting get featured on the front of UCLan's leaflets!
Here's some work from the other universities on show, etc ~
|There was a graffiti wall. I had to add an axolotl.|
Overall it was a fantastic day. I even had time to check out the sights of London, which is something I've wanted to do for years. I also discovered that I absolutely love the tube, despite nearly getting lost and stranded at one point... I got some pretty photos of the city, and its wonderful and famous landmarks, but here's an odd photo of me outside Buckingham Palace, and a nice squirrel we watched in Camden instead ~
I graduated a couple of weeks ago, too. I'll update you on that as soon as my special triumphant photos of me holding a scroll arrive in the post.
