Alumni - Emily Harper

After graduating (2010), I was lucky enough to get full time work with a production company I had started to freelance with for my professional development. My job role started as illustrator and animator, building on skills I had developed on the course but evolved to include graphic design, creative scribing and workshop leading for creative workshops in youth settings. I have worked with Cass Productions to produce hand-drawn scribing videos for a number of high profile clients and council initiatives (if you see the MyJourney Portsmouth video on the big screen near the train station, it's my hand drawing!) and design clients have been incredibly diverse, ranging from Naomi house to Liverpool Football Club. Alongside work with the production company, I have gained freelance work through my blog and self promotion. This has ranged from education resources for Fulham Palace, fashion illustrations for a Audrey Grace boutique in New York and a organic hog roast company called Oink! On my degree, I specialised in my first love, children's book illustration. Since then I have illustrated picture books and chapter books for a number of self published authors, and I am looking for an agent for my own books.
