Jill Calder pops in for the day

Bright colours, inky lines, painterly texture, playful attitude and bags of humour. All things present and correct in the work of illustrator, Jill Calder. As an ex-foundation student of The University of Cumbria (though known as Cumbria College of Art & Design in Jill's day) Jill positively leapt at the chance to pop in for a day to regale the students with tales of her career and experiences in the world of professional illustration.

A quick google search gives you an ideas of the scope of Jill's vast output

So what are Jill's secrets to success? Simple.
1 - Spell check and be polite.
2 - Understand what you know and learn what you don't.
3 - Draw.

A sneaky spy shot of some upcoming top secret work that Jill let us in on. Very exciting.

Some work from Jill's many many (many many many) sketchbooks

As well as an informative and entertaining talk and a Q&A session students (and staff) also got the chance to explore Jill's work in the flesh.

Jill Calder, Grillust salutes you. We were informed. We were entertained. We made a new friend.
