I've been at Salford University this week for the Graphic Design BA (Hons) degree show. Graduating students are exhibiting their work at The Hive from Wednesday June 15th, with a special industry afternoon/evening on Thursday 16th June. Anybody in Manchester should go along and see fantastic work on display from Lottie Pencheon, David Ryan Robinson and too many others to mention. Expect giant cats, plastic aeroplanes, a huge array of hand-made books and zines and creatures galore. Not to mention quality graphic design and moving image work.
Also happening in Manchester now at Mr Thomas' Chophouse is Unleashed: The Best in the North. This is a great opportunity to see and buy artwork from some of the best undergraduate illustration students in the Northwest, including loads from Salford.
This post is linked up to the eyeballs, so there's no excuse not to go and have a good pint and admire some splendid pics at the same time.
