Degree Show Picks

Hello! I've been in Aberdeen for a few days getting out of my comfort zone doing some super large scale work. I'll let you in on it soon! In the meantime I thought I'd post some of my favourites from this years degree show at Edinburgh College of Art.

Its only right I post an illustrator first. As ever the Illustration show is well worth a look with plenty of books to leaf through and a wee shop for special purchases. My favourite work this year was by Irene Servillo (above). Her work is consistently lovely, dreamy and shows a really well developed sense of personal style.
Check out the 2010 degree show site for the rest of the illustration graduates.

Next to graphic design where the work of mr Joseph Pielichaty (above) really caught my attention. As well as having a strong design sensibility Joseph is also a master of illustrated nonsense! His sketchbooks are a real treat; charming, witty and nicely drawn.

Painting now. I really liked a couple of folks this year (Matthew Swan for example is definitely going to be a painting superstar in the near future) but my favourite piece was this one (above) by Alex Gibbs. I don't have to explain why do I? Its just flipping beautiful.

The degree show runs until Sunday 20th June At Edinburgh College of Art on Lauriston Place, Edinburgh.
