Introducing Student Artists: Sarah Hodgkiss

Sarah Hodgkiss was the lucky winner of Label’s first monthly Illustration Competition, run by the Illustration section of Label magazine. Each month sees a different theme, which artists must base a piece of artwork around. Entries are then displayed online and are voted for by other students. Last month’s theme was, quite fittingly, Freshers. Despite many incredible entries, Sarah’s “Evolution of a Fresher” received an amazing fifty votes and was therefore declared as the winning piece. Read below to find out more about the winning artist;

Name: Sarah Hodgkiss

Course: Fine Art

Favourite material/medium to work with: Generally, I like using watercolour and ink, but have recently got into using Uni Posca markers because they leave a strong mark whatever you're using them on.

Idea for winning piece: I figured that most entries would be based on images of the actual events of Freshers and wanted to do something slightly different and a little comical, then I saw the Evolution of Man image in a magazine, and went from there.

Potential career choice: Ideally, I would like to live from selling my own art work, but very few people are that successful. So long as I'm doing something art related and get to travel a bit, I'll be happy.
