Edinburgh College of Art Degree Show 2008 Illustration

I really look forward to the ECA Degree show each year, in particularly the illustration as I’m always left in awe of how talented many of them are. Here are my favourites from this year’s show.

This book sculpture was created by Lucy Roscoe. It’s so intricate – I can’t even begin to imagine how long it must have taken to create. Really gorgeous stuff.

I also badly wanted to buy this Lovebird print of Lucy’s but unfortunately it’s not pay day until next week.

Sophie Elm’s show was centred around her “Impossibly perfect garden party”. She works under the pseudonym of Jeff Josephine Designs and has an array of gorgeous illustrated items on her site available to buy. The symmetry of her designs is illustrations.

Emily Sutton created a collection of fabric songbird’s which are absolutely beautiful.

Vanity Fair Cover Exhibition

On Thursday night I went to the Vanity Fair Cover Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. One of my favourite photographs was this one of Julianne Moore portrayed as Ingres’s ‘Grand Odalisque’ by Michael Thompson – an absolutely stunning piece of photography. It was fascinating to see all the cultural icons which have graced their cover over the past century.

I love this typeface by Nicolle Clement which is part of her Stereotype project. It makes me think of the illustrative style used in the Robinsons’s Fruit drink adverts for some reason, so while I’m at it have a look at this cute promotional site they’ve created.

Beautiful typographic illustrations

I am a big fan of Eileen Ogg‘s work which I discovered at Edinburgh College of Art’s 2006 Degree Show.
