One of my biggest dreams has come true! I have been accepted on an MA programme for Children's Book illustration - straight from Foundation, without a BA. And it's not any Children's Book MA, no, it's the best one around at the Cambridge School of Arts!!!
I am so excited, I won't need coffee for days! This course has brought about countless Macmillan Prize winners and famous illustrators such as Paula Metcalf, Lis Evans, Sam McCullen, Carol Liddiment, Pam Smy, Algy Hall, Anna Wadham and Kazuno Kohara. And Alexis Deacon is amongst the guest staff. The course is run by Prof Martin Salisbury, who has published various books on Children's Book illustration, amongst them Play Pen which is very hard to get nowadays, and he is a judge at the Bologna Children's Book Fair. I mean, how wicked is that???
Can't wait till September when the course starts!
