Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Companion artist

Illustrator Alex McGinn is one of the artist’s featuring in Amelias Colourful Companion Magazine for her stunning vibrant, unique and bright illustrations. A Falmouth college student, who was discovered at the New Designers 2015 Summer Show. It was her distinctive autumn palette of vivid and bright colourful illustrations that allowed her to really stand out from the crowd and the fact that her palette lends her work to different subjects. Some of Alexs’ illustrations can be found in Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Books for adults who love to colour in. Alex takes on commissions and one of them being was to design and produce  a leaflet depicting the History of the Workers’ Educational Association within Dartington itself, from the past 100years. The illustrated map was put together leading the viewer to see the trail of Dartington Estate and the countrysides surroundings. Along the way on this map Alex had some NOW and THEN statements displayed, that explained the past and current projects the WEA undertook in Dartington. This was Alex’s first commission due to her tutor from Falmouth College having contact with Write to Freedom which collaborated with Workers Eduactional Association. Drawing is her passion and you can see that perfectly in her work displayed here and read and learn more about Alex McGibb from the Interview on this link.
