LJMU degree show

ljmu7Went to the pv of the graphic arts course at LJMU last night. Although the show was visually stunning- huge new space and lots of large format prinouts- the work was quite dull and derivative, with some really poor drawing in the ‘so bad its good’ school of thought. A couple of nice illustrators, but the delicacy of their work was  swamped by the style of the show. A shame as I am usually really excited and impressed by what I see at Liverpool.

Took some photos today.
