Bafta Awards Evening

Each year The British Academy of Film and Television Arts selects an illustrator for the prestigious task of creating imagery for their annual awards evening. Former Kingston graduate Jonathan Burton was chosen for this year to produce the images that act as an alternative film poster for this year’s shortlisted nominations in the ‘Best Film’ category.
Above is his beautiful interpretation of Life of Pi - coincidentally a subject a few of our first years have been attempting recently. You can see his other fantastic images here and you can also obtain prints of them. As well as seeing the rest of his body of work which is subtle and full of great visual thinking.
If he didn't live in Bordeaux I would try and invite him to come and talk.
