My original artwork for this years SPX programme guide has recently been added to the Library of Congress Comics Collection in Washington (Thanks to SPX director Warren Bernard).. Heres an article about the amazing collection at BleedingCool
I'l be at SPX in Washington this weekend! at table K8 and K9 (see above) with a whole bunch of Nobrow books, and a new limited edition screen print of my own. Come by and say hello if you're there... (Above is the programme guide that I designed for the event, which I think will also be available as a print).
I was very excited to find out recently that an orchestral piece had been written and performed recently named after, and partly based upon my comic book Dockwood.
It was composed by Christopher Mayo for the Manchester Camarata, and Christopher has written a fascinating blog post about its creation HERE.
I'm getting a plane today to Portland for the Stumptown Festival where I will be exhibiting some prints and originals with Reading Frenzy (including the above image), as well as getting involved with some activities at the festival, including a kids comic workshop (also above).
I've been printing a lot recently for a new exhibition of my work that will open next Thursday at Reading Frenzy in Portland, This will be a part of the Stumptown festival which i'm very excited to be attending.
Above are a few photos of some of the new prints alongside some shots of them being made. They are a selection of Lino cuts, Lithographs and Screenprints, - printed both at work in the print studios, and at home in the evening (when I ran out of time in the day).
I'l post a fuller set of these prints at some point in the future.
The window of my studio looks out over a wide stretch of office blocks, and I often find myself gazing out when I'm stuck with some work. Sometimes you can spot builders wandering around on the rooftops in bright yellow high-vis jackets, normally fixing scaffold, or working on the roofing, but sometimes just drinking coffee and looking at the view.
I made this image of my view on a cold, grey, winter day for the current issue of London Review of Books.
