Had a guest lecturer in today, and illustrator called Andrew Foster. I really enjoyed the lecture, his work was quite astounding and gritty in nature and topic. I like the fact that his work is extremely personal to him and his family life and the fact that he is so open about his past circumstances and feels it necessary to express this in this illustrations. He is a real inspiration and one of the things he said that really hit home was 'You need to have fun doing illustration otherwise it becomes boring, there is no point drawing if you don't enjoy it'. so true!
