BA (Hons) Illustration graduates have been talking to AUB after their London summer shows. Here Megan Tadden discusses her work
Can you tell us about your work?
It’s a children’s picture book. I produced it wanting it to be very inclusive of disability because there’s been such a push with gender and race, but in children’s books disability is very much non-existent, and, when it is there, it is more often than not, quite insulting. It’s about a little boy who swims out into the sea to save the moon when it falls in.
How have you found the last three years at AUB?
I’ve really enjoyed it. My style has blossomed and my skills have improved. I’ve met some amazing people. It’s been so inspiring – I’ve really loved it.
What are you planning to do now you’re finished?
I’ve got a couple of interviews coming up but I’m also dabbling with the idea of doing a Masters and I’m going to start contacting some publishers, so fingers crossed.
