Visiting Lecturer - Ben Cain

Illustration course alumnus Ben Cain gave a very personal and insightful talk to current third years.
It was great to hear Ben talk about the thoughts he had as a student and how his career keeps taking different directions after his graduation eight or so years ago.
Ben has produced books for the Folio Society, as well as a variety of editorial commissions but he is also involved with a lot of graphic design work. A very interesting perspective of the range of work that illustrators can be part of.
