Terra Two project

We’ve been working on a collaborative project with the School of Humanities, Religion and Theology at York St John. The project is led by Dr Liesl King, who specialises in women’s Science Fiction. Students had to come up with a visual narrative that explored the idea that when (not if) we have to move off planet to Terra Two because we’ve made such a mess of the earth, what would we take with us? And how can we prioritise the arts and humanities?

The Terra Two brief included entry into a competition with a prize of vouchers for Travelling Man comics shop in York for the entry judged to best meet the brief and develop illustration to a high standard. The entries were phenomenal and we had to give a joint first prize in the end. Images below.

Pop Up Pavement Art Illuminating York

From 26th to 29th October 2016, 1st year Illustration BA (Hons) students at York St John University made pop-up pavement art outside the Fine Art Phoenix building.

Their drawings were based on character designs they had developed for a project brief. We were very lucky with the weather, the drawings lasted the whole week and beyond and were very popular with visitors of all ages.
