My name is Jane Sunbeam and I have just finished my MA in Children’s Book Illustration and I wanted to write how the Illustrating Children’s Book Diploma with Maggy Roberts was a really important part of this journey.
When I was nervously attempting to try to link my words and pictures, I found the Children’s Illustration course, and it was great, giving me the vital information I needed to get started – and reintroducing me to the basics such as pen and ink, and collage from my own painted papers.
I loved the briefs, as it was so useful doing the same as other students, learning and being inspired by those who had succeeded before me. I still use the collaged peacock image to this day. Maggie was so kind and constructive, and through this course I gained enough confidence (and images) to apply for the Ma.
We have our final show in London 9th to 13th Feb 2016 and the exhibition details are on their website.
