HCS Sixth Formers Inspired by Illustrator Jennie Maizels

Published by Embley on Wednesday 2nd of April 2014

Last week, students at HCS were privileged to have a visit from illustrator Jennie Maizels, who gave a talk to A level students about sketchbooks. Jennie is renowned for her pop-up books and textile designs and pupils were enchanted to see all the examples of work that she brought in to show them.

Year 13 art student Jessica Evans (who is going to Bournemouth University Arts College to do a Foundation Course in Art and Design in September) said: 'The talk was incredibly informative and gave me an insight into what it was like to work as a professional illustrator and the sketchbooks were amazing.'

Jennie commented: 'It was an absolute pleasure spending time with the very talented sixth formers, I hope their enthusiasm lasts well after leaving HCS, their work really was outstanding.'

Jennie studied illustration at Central St Martin's School of Art and Design and graduated in 1993. She is best known for her fun non-fiction books for children, such as Pop-up London, The Great Grammar Book and Perfect Punctuation Book as well as her inventive 'Clothes Plasters'. Jennie lives in Hampshire with her husband and two children. More information about Jennie Maizels can be found at: www.jenniemaizels.com
