Guest Lecturer - Sam Chivers

Thanks to Sam Chivers for giving a lecture about his artwork and that of Magic Torch, the illustration collective he runs with Sam Williams and Mike Chipperfield. All three graduated from our course back in 1997. It was great to have an overview of how Magic Torch was set up and the balance between fabulous commissions and less exciting ones. Sam also discussed the balance between digital work and hands-on illustration and how keeping your own 'personal work' going was necessary and could feed back into commercial work. We were all very impressed with the quality of screenprints!
