Raymond Briggs on going to Art School
We interviewed the legendary illustrator Raymond Briggs about what it was like going to art school at 16. What he says about the perceived difference between commercial and fine art is fascinating. Always one to be forward thinking Raymond recognises that, even historically, great artists often ran huge art operations and were just as commercial as everything else. Art, no matter how sublime, says Raymond, still needs to be paid for. Hear hear!
