Alice Catteau
Class of 2020


Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
As a graduate of 2020, I was lucky that I was only minimally affected by the pandemic by missing my graduation. I wanted to highlight the lack of support many students were, and still are, given whilst in education. I named this piece 'Class of 2020' last summer for the recently graduated, but now I will continue to call it such as I hope we can all graduate beyond the events of last year.

How was the illustration used:
This was a personal project, aimed as an animated image for an online magazine. The major changes in our lives have led to an influx of virtual interference. As well as being a reflection upon this interference within education, this piece considers how other areas, such a print media, will change in the near future.

How did you make this work:
This was originally planned as a stationary illustration, so a basic sketch started this piece. After receiving a supportive amount of positive feedback, it was decided this concept would help expand my skills into animation. The first final draft felt rather rough so I recently redid this piece a subdued colour palette, perhaps to highlight the loss of colour in day-to-day life post-COVID.
