Students enjoy interactive workshop from professional illustrator Joe Melhuish

3D illustrator and animation director Joe Melhuish provided an insightful masterclass to West Herts Art and Design students.

Joe, who has worked for Spotify, Comic Relief and MTV among others, gave students an insight into the illustration and animation world, talking about the intricacies of working with his A-list clients.

He then hosted a hands-on workshop, teaching West Herts Digital Illustration and Animation students about character design.

Course Leader of Digital illustration and Animation at the college, Matt Gee said: “It was great to have Joe come and speak to the students.

“He spoke candidly of his experience in a very difficult industry and gave great advice on how to break out from the crowd.

“It was comprehensive in showing all the work but remained incredibly engaging and humorous thought out.

“I know lots of students walked away feeling inspired and with new animation skills under their belt.”
