Cover art to the standard edition of Sam Costello's Split Lip Volume 2; The Harvestmen and Other Stories (9 in all).
Much yucks for your bucks. Comes highly recommended.

I was thinking about Uncle Creepy, Albert Steptoe and grave robbing.

By pure chance we walked past the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery...

'Art from the New World showcases brand new work by 49 of the finest contemporary artists, under the curation of the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles.
The selected artists are part of an exciting new movement that encompasses all forms of media and art - painting, sculpture, printing, stencil, photography and digital art. The exhibition exposes an American art scene that is bold and provocative, with images expressing dark humor, a longing to reconnect with innocence and a fresh look at the 'ideals' of glamour and beauty'.

Among them; Dave Cooper, Shag, Camille Rose Garcia, Todd Schorr, Mark Ryden, Jason Shawn Alexander, Coop and Kent Williams.
It's delirious, delicious, weird and wonderful work, where underground becomes otherground and the lowbrow meets highbrow.
It will leave your brain all tingly.

If, like us, you've not seen this art outside Juxtapoz magazine, books or prints, and you live in, or near Bristol, you really REALLY shouldn't miss this opportunity.

You've got till the 22ND of August.

Infectious Reading

Since history lessons at junior school I've always loved woodcuts.

The expressionistic shapes and stark use of light and dark undoubtedly had an influence on the way i draw. I still look to them for inspiration, trying to bring that drama and immediacy to my art.

Suzanne knows me well...

A gift; The London Folio Society edition of Daniel Defoe's A Journal of the Plague Year , beautifully illustrated by Peter Pendrey, a rare treat indeed.

Let me share...
