ARU Spotlight Podcast - Chris Draper

Chris Draper, Course Leader and Senior Lecturer for the BA (Hons) Illustration degree at ARU, talks about his journey as a practising illustrator, from education to professional life; his early experiments with a music career that got him into the top ten of the indie dance charts; and how working as a freelance illustrator, particularly with New Scientist magazine, opened him up to new ideas he had never before considered.

This interview was originally recorded in March 2021, when the UK was still under national lockdown because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The ARU Spotlight Podcast is a series of interviews with students, alumni, academic and technical staff from the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at ARU exploring their personal experiences of education, career paths, projects and interests, and their advice for anyone hoping to work in the same field. Hosted by Gareth Long, Communications Co-ordinator for the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at ARU.
