Amy Holliday Wins the Graduate Showcase Excellence Award for Illustration

Amy and her winning smile...

Amy Holliday has been crowned top illustration graduate in the Computer Arts Graduate Showcase awards for 2011. We here at Grillust are very, very proud of her.

This is both a fantastic personal achievement for Amy (21) and great news for the BA in Illustration at The University of Cumbria. Our Illustration degree is only 3 years old and Amy is a student from the very first graduating year!

The event was judged by illustrator Autumn Whitehurst who had this to say about Amy's work:

Amy is a native of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria - a town famous for Hurdy Gurdies, nuclear submarines and Dave Myers (from off of/out of The Hairy Bikers/Bakers). Here's what the local paper had to say about her victory:

Note: the article features a rare photo of Amy Holliday on holiday...

and here's some more of Amy's work

We wish Amy well as she embarks on her career as a professional illustrator. Pop over to her website to see more of her beautifully observed, drawn and painted work.
