Gary Embury
Senior Lecturer in Illustration

Steve Braund


Six internationally renowned illustrators visited Falmouth University last week to present at the 12th annual Illustration Forum, 'Witness.' The event was chaired by Gary Embury, senior lecturer at the University of the West of England.

Each year a theme is chosen for the Forum which explores a different aspect of authorial illustration practice. Each theme has shed light on a different aspect of the work of an authorial illustrator, the development of an illustrator's individual voice and the assertion of their personal characteristics of authorship. Over the twelve years the Forum has played host to about sixty internationally renowned illustrators. The 2014 sell-out Forum focused on reportage and documentary illustration.

This year's event was chaired chaired by Gary Embury, with guest speakers Anne Howeson, Lucinda Rogers, Fumio Obata and alumni Anna Cattermole and Jenny Soep. Sue Coe was interview by Gary Embury via Skype from her home in upstate New York.
