"...I've learnt a lot about the illustration industry and the way it works, giving me a broad perspective on the tools used, popular trends and the creative thinking process behind illustration. I can honestly say I wasn't actually aware of illustration as a profession before this course, it's opened my eyes to a creative career that's both challenging and very rewarding - I wish I'd known about it sooner!” -
