BA (Hons) Illustration 2022 graduates from Camberwell College of Arts (UAL) have created final projects that deal with issues ranging from the patriarchy to collective memory, the subconscious and grief. We pick out a section of graduate projects below.


Marisa Marley’s Girls N Guts is an illustrated zine which compiles quotes from women sharing their experiences of the patriarchy including cat-calling and non-consensual touching. Curdle by Avalon K Hale-Thomson is an illustrated book that explores the concept of collective female memory. The hand-stitched book features a hand-inked cover and a quilted satin slipcase and features two narratives that weave around each other; misogyny in suburbia and a girl driven into insanity with the blood of the family’s dog on her hands.

Hannah Norberg’s Eating Soup with a Fork is an animated piece that explores how mental health and our subconscious can alter our perceptions of reality. The project is informed by Norberg’s own research into surrealist automatism and the artist’s own subconscious.


The collective unconscious and indigenous dream theory form the basis of Thuy Ly Leova’s Rei Carter and The Forgotten Universe project. The multimedia project features interactive, 360 ° panoramic spaces the allow the viewer to explore the dream worlds of the fictional Rei Carter character.


Boris Kwok seeks to open up conversations about death and grieving with children. The kit, which is aimed at 5 to 10 year old kids, features candles, wooden boats, a grief activity book and painting materials. Each candle comes in a different size, representing a different generation of a family, and children can paint them before placing them in the ceremonial boat to be lit and burn to nothing. Kwok explains: ‘The candles are a means to an end. It carries all the bad emotions and releases them into oblivion.’

Cathy Philip created the humorous PRATS vs TATTS animation which is inspired by stories compiled from people who have experienced stigma because of their tattoos. The animation features a mixture of visual styles which change when the protagonist faints after seeing a tattoo come to life and enters a surreal dream world featuring a Queen and a giant swan.
