Kezia Hulse on life af­ter grad­u­a­tion

As my fi­nal year at Cam­bridge School of Art drew to a close, my mind be­gan to crowd with a stream of ques­tions: ‘Have I used my time well?’, ‘Am I ready to en­ter the real world?’ and ‘What am I go­ing to do next?’ Th­ese ques­tions are in­evitable for the re­luc­tant art school grad­u­ate and do p pose real wor­ries about the un­known fu­ture. I loved my course and while I miss the structure and rou­tine, and the stu­dio en­vi­ron­ment, I feel like I was fairly pre­pared to en­ter the big wide world of art and de­sign. One thing that m mas­sively helped me was ex­hibit­ing at New D De­sign­ers, a grad­u­ate event in Lon­don where p peo­ple are in­vited to see re­cent stu­dents’ w work. This re­ally al­lowed me to show­case my b best pieces and present who I was as an i il­lus­tra­tor. Mol­lie Makes were there and k kindly awarded me their As­so­ciate Prize – this was so ex­cit­ing and boosted my con­fi­dence, and I’m happy they l liked my il­lus­tra­tions enough to p put them in is­sue 112! Al­though I feel like I’m still im­pro­vis­ing my w way through ‘grad­u­ate life’, I’m e ex­cited to de­velop my way of w work­ing. I’m cur­rently do­ing a me­dia m pro­duc­tion in­tern­ship and free­lance fr il­lus­tra­tion on the side. I don’t d have a firm plan for what’s next, n but I’ll def­i­nitely con­tinue to be b creative with il­lus­tra­tion!
