Clifford Herbert

London Art College student Clifford Herbert has just completed our Illustration Diploma course and passed with a Distinction. Tutor Steve Hersey was over the moon with Cliffords work and said – Clifford has just completed his Illustration Diploma course and his work was outstanding. I was deeply impressed by the quality of skill and imagination.

We asked Clifford if he would mind us adding some of his work on the blog – which he didn’t of course! You can read about each image below. Clifford said –

I’m glad to say that I passed my Illustration course, and have received my diploma. Thanks once again to LAC and my tutor for their excellent course and support and the most useful, informative and encouraging feedback that I could have wished for.

What a great course it was. One in which I learned so much, which had me thinking and, at times, scratching the aging head, and sometimes using some words I ought not to have uttered; it was a course which drew (‘scuse the pun) so much out of me that I didn’t know was there. It took me far too long to do, but was such a great pleasure. Anyway, thanks to you, College. What to do with myself now….ah, yes, time to make a decent start on my drawing and painting course….
