The image above is a sketch by Brian Grimwood at one of our recent meetings, produced with the aid of an Apple iPad. Brian is known for his use of traditional media and his fast flowing lines, the dramatic use of colour and the playfulness of ideas. This image embraces new technology but retains the visual signature which characterises his work.

I’m currently working with Brain to bring his soon to be published book ‘The Man who changed the Look of British Illustration’ and Show, to University Campus Suffolk in November. The show will chronicle 40 years of his illustration and graphic communication for clients across the globe. Such as: BBC, Sony, London Transport, The Beatles, M&S, Vogue, Johnny Walker...the list is endless.

As the new academic year looms, to all those I will be working with shortly, start to draw...and be bold.
