UKPA / Black Heart Gigposter Gallery Launch & Pop Up Shop

More event news – since not everyone can make it over to LA, this one is for my London friends:

In collaboration with The Black Heart in Camden, UKPA is pleased to announce the launch of its series of ongoing gig poster exhibitions inside the pub. UKPA Gig Poster Gallery will be a permanent exhibition space showcasing the best screenprinted gig poster work the UK has to offer.

The inaugural show will take place on Thursday 29th November and feature 31 selected works by:
Adam Pobiak, Cameron Steward/Twoducksdisco, Craig Robson, Diego Mena, Drew Millward, Gary McGarvey/Horse Design, Graham Pilling/Army of Cats, Luke Drozd, Michael Cowell, Nick Rhodes/Switchopen, Petting Zoo Prints and Collectables, Sean Mort, Telegramme, Tom Lacey & WeThreeClub

The night will also see the launch of the brand new UKPA website, an online resource to keep you up to date with everything the UKPA is organising, as well as information on commissioning and making gig posters and a directory of active UK artists.

This will also be everyones last chance to get down and greasy as the Mother Flipper burger residency at The Black Heart comes to an end. So come for the posters, stay for the burgers!

And if that wasn’t enough, theres a really great show happening just upstairs with Triple Jump Records putting on Dead Rider (ex US Maple – as a warm up to their performance at Shellac’s ATP) with Silent Front, Joeyfat and Stnnng.

Tribute to Judd Apatow – Gallery 1988 Exhibition

I am very honoured and excited to have been asked by Gallery 1988 to be invovled in their forthcoming Tribute to Judd Apatow exhibition.

Judd is an American film producer, director, and screenwriter and you will have undoubtedly have come across some of the comedy films with which he’s been involved.  Whether it’s Freaks and Geek, Cable Guy, Knocked Up, Anchorman, Superbad, or 40-year-old Virgin, Judd’s comedic career has been incredible and G1988 have assembled a wide variety of artists from across the globe to pay tribute with funny pictures and arts and whatnot.

Judd will be there in person hosting the opening night, which takes place on Tuesday 4th December from 7-10pm at Gallery 1988’s Melrose, LA venue.

Followers of my social media channels may have already seen the work I’ve produced for this exhibition (oops, I think I was meant to keep it secret) but for those that haven’t: if you’re a fan of weathermen with comedically low IQs then I think you’ll be in for a treat.


Thought Bubble Recap

Thought Bubble Festival was great fun! Thanks so much to all the nice folk who bought some of my stuff or just took flyers or asked questions. Considering I didn’t fully know what to expect, as to whether comic event goers would be aware of screenprinted work or understand what makes it so lovely (especially compared to boring old digital prints), but I was pleasantly surprised at the interest people had, and I even had some great chats with other screenprinters.

Overall it was definitely worth my time and hopefully I’ll be making appearances at future Thought Bubble events!

Huge thanks of course go out to the OK COMICS Team who made me very much feel part of the family.  Give those guys some love.

PS – Thanks also to the lovely House of Betty peeps for their kind mention in their TB update here:

Thought Bubble 2012 – Leeds Royal Armouries

Thought Bubble is probably the best event of it’s kind in the UK – not just a comics convention but a true celebration of sequential art and culture of all kinds.  It’s taking place this weekend and I’m delighted to say that I’ll be present selling some of my printed goods at the OK COMICS stand.

I will have a selection of my screenprinted posters for people to browse and buy, including a few choicely framed items, and I’ll also have notebooks, sketchbooks, and a few other things.  If you’re going to be in attendance please come by and say hello – we’re right by the entrance!
