Meet Our Judges: 3x3 Student Show

Welcome to the thirteenth annual 3x3 International Illustration Awards, over the next several weeks we will be introducing you to our international jury of art directors, designers, publishers and illustrators.

Our student show judges are special, not only are they full-time illustrators they are also involved with educating the next generation of artists. In selecting judges for this show we look first at the quality of their illustration and secondly on how they are influencing their students. Most are part-time instructors, some are lecturers and many are both.

He primarily works for a wide range of editorial and design clients in the UK and US markets. Now relocated to the North West of England he returned part time to Manchester School of Art in January 2014 where he is currently a full-time Senior Lecturer on the BA (Honors) Illustration with Animation course.
