New Designers update

Congratulations to Dani Hackett on securing an internship with River Island, as a result of Exhibiting at the New Designers.
Dani sent this update:

A good bit of news is that I've managed to get myself an internship with River Island through New Designers! A woman who works there saw my work on the Wednesday and gave me a week to complete a brief, then after a quick Skype interview they offered it to me! So New Designers was definitely 100% worth it and couldn't be happier we got the opportunity. Here's an image I created for the brief:

Alumni Dan Kitchener (DANK) painting large scale in the US

Dan Kitchener (DANK) has been invited to America to paint the side of a building! Click the link to hear him talk about the project. Click to link to see him being interviewed for TV.

Follow @DanKtchenerART to read more as this develops...

"Ghost lines almost there, huge wall, this photo doesn't really show the scale, but its a tricky one to sketch, especially getting the proportions and perspective correct. It's all freehand, sketched by eye, no grids, guides or projections! I do like to challenge myself !"

To see the finished work:

Update from Caroline Misselbrook - MA Illustration

"Super excited to reveal what I've been working on for The Docks Coffee House on Oxford Street in Southampton! Pop into the cafe for delicious homemade cake, lunch or dinner and try their locally roasted coffee (Winchester Coffee Roasters) - the original ink and watercolour piece (50 x 44cm) will be up for a limited time only. It's going to be enlarged, printed and displayed on the wall as a mural... See more — feeling excited at The Docks Coffee House.

Just to give you an idea of scale.... I'm 6ft 3in! Looking proud
Limited edition prints have been delivered and will be available to purchase in the café very soon..."
