Former Birmingham Metropolitan College student gets book coverage

Having one of your photographs used on the cover of a book by a Danish author and also featured on the cover of an American magazine would be the achievements of a lifetime for most artists, but for Alexander Boardman, these were just the start of his success.

The former Birmingham Metropolitan College photography student has now had 15 of his paintings and designs used as blanket covers manufactured by an online company in America.

Paintings created two months ago by the 23-year-old were spotted by fleece blanket makers, Blanket Service. The company will now provide Alexander with a percentage of the profits from every blanket they sell featuring one of his designs.
