‘My expectations are always high when I visit the Falmouth stand at the London graduate shows every year. I’m never disappointed – there is always a consistency of quality work. Their show really does stand out from the crowd.
We see Falmouth students throughout their course when they visit us for portfolio reviews and to learn about what agents do. The regular visits to industry experts give them a valuable insight into the career possibilities within the illustration world and confidence in their work by the time they graduate.
The course instils in them the knowledge that their degree is just the beginning of a continued life of learning that will help them grow as artists.
It’s not surprising that Arena represents quite a few Falmouth alumni. What impresses me is how they embrace our constructive feedback and understand the advantages of a collaborative relationship between agent and illustrator. It continues to be a pleasure to work with them and we will always be on the lookout for the next talented artist from their ranks.’
