Year One Images 34 trip to Blackpool

We had a fun filled family day out in Blackpool at the end of February to see the Images 34 show at Blackpool College. The exhibition which shows the best of British illustration included Alexander Barrett's Degree Show poster image from our very own preston illustration course. Not to mention several friends of the course including Mr David Hughes' Walking The Dog which won the critics' prize, Jill Calder, and Chris Vine, plus Chris Harper and Rob Gill in the Book plus many more. 
Illustration that stood out for me were  Chris Haughton's children's book work, and Noma Bar's editorial. 

Also well done to whoever hung the exhibition as it was hung in colour order and we loved that idea and might nick it one day! 
The Images 34 tour will be on a holiday and will be back in the North West in August at an apparently secret venue (not listed in the AOI website) somewhere in Clitheroe August 8th 2011 – October 9th 2011 tba!
Thanks to Year two student Rik Das for the above photos.
As part of the reportage brief the students were doing we went to do some drawing around the amusements, along the pier and down by the sea. Despite the fact the whole of the prom was being dug up and looked like a world war one trenches theme park, all in all a right nice day out.
