About Pete Frankish
In 1986, I found myself at Lincoln College of Art to study graphic design. I quickly realised I did not wish to be a graphic designer, but having succeeded in escaping from Scunthorpe, I thought it best to keep this to myself.
The course was excellent and the first six months were devoted entirely to drawing from direct observation with life drawing one day a week. At the end of this, I exhibited my work and received a critique from my tutors. I was told ‘now don’t let this go to your head, but your work shows a fair degree of natural ability’. Of course it went straight to my head and I breezed through the two year course and passed in 1988.
