Alumni Shorts: Lize Meddings — BA (Hons) Illustration

By Sarah Packer
In the second of our new series of Alumni Shorts, we sit down with Sad Ghost Club founder and BA (Hons) Illustration graduate Lize Meddings.

During her time at the college, Lize quickly developed her unique style and it was then that she came up with The Sad Ghost Club. With a massive international following, the club follows the character of a sad ghost, highlighting the issues of those who have ever felt sad or lost. Selling apparel, zines, badges and more, the club helps to raise awareness for mental health.

Away from her work for The Sad Ghost Club, Lize also works on her own illustrations – ranging from colourful animals and confessions to wandering ladies and lots of plants!

Four years on from graduation, we find out more about Lize's process, practice and passion for illustration – including her work as founder of The Sad Ghost Club and her own cute and colourful illustrations. Lize also gives some top tips for aspiring illustrators, and explains why she chose to study in Plymouth.
