Brighton Graduates

Shown above, work by graphic design graduate Lauren Duly. If you cannot read the text in the corner it says... Felipendulous
suspended by, or strung upon,
a single thread

This is an illustration done by a friend of mine Emily Cross, who has just graduated from Brighton. You can see more of her work at

Above is some work by Nicolas Cranch who has just graduated from Brighton studying Graphic Design. I don't know how he made this image or what it is, but it is beautiful.

This is some illustration work from a brighton graduate called Sophie Alda. I love the pastel colour scheme, it brings an innocence to her strange characters.

I've recently been looking at the work of american artist Barry Mcgee. His work is inspired by mexican mural artists and grafitti of the 70's and 80's. I love his characters he draws from his imagination and his use of flat colour with black line. I also really like how he exhibits his work. He nails all of his frames really close together so they overwhelm each other and in some cases hang on top of one another. It makes for a really intense installation to look at. A picture i've also featured is his work on glass bottles. I like to illustrate on different materials and i have screen printed onto glass before. Seeing Barry's work inspires me to push that further for my fourth and final year of college. I'd like to work on glass, porcelain, wood and paper too of course.
