D&AD New Blood

Just back from a great three days at the New Blood event at Spitalfields Market. I met some great people, both from Industry and fellow Illustrators and Designers. My work was really well received, with some kind words written by: 

Patrick Burgoyne from Creative Reviewhere

and by Ray Vellest on his blog Woorduphere

The range of work really was impressive and it was great to catch up with a few twitter followers face to face; such as Jamie Jones and Victoria Green, with a few others I’m sorry to have missed.

Our Solent stand got some great feedback from many of our visitors and here are a few shots; one of which features C.J.Todd’s award winning piece. 

Bournemouth’s Illustration stand and UWE’s Graphics & Illustration stands were possibly my favourites although I didn’t get time to really go around and see everyone’s work, but even so here’s a list of names who’s work I really enjoyed : 

Cj Brown

Harry Haysom

Holly Harwood

Holly Neal

Joe Staples
