I must draw your attention to this important event happening this Sunday. I have sent along some prints which will be sold at the fair. Here is the info:
"Weeks have passed yet the sheer scale of devastation wrought by the recent earthquake and tsunami on the east coast of Japan is still impossible to fully comprehend. Watching the scenes unfold on TV screens those of us with friends and family in the region were left with a horrible feeling of disconnection and a sense of uselessness.
To counter this however we can, we introduce EGAKU: a one/two day event to raise money for the Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Onsale will be zines, prints, ceramics, original drawings, books and much more, from some of the most renowned illustrators and designers of today - Rob Ryan, Nobrow, Okido, Anorak Magazine, Jean Jullien, Laura Carlin, Frinton Press, Peepshow, Luke Best, Hato Press, Lazy Oaf, Oh Comely, Winged Chariot, and many many more.
EGAKU means "draw" and "imagine " in Japanese. We hope that we can support Japanese people EGAKU ( imagine) a peaceful future by EGAKU (drawing). 100% of all money made will be donated to the relief effort, so please join us on 3rd of April at Jaguar Shoes for those suffering in Japan.
This weekend I'll be at the Memorabilia show at the NEC in Birmingham. I haven't been to Memorabilia for years and it will be the first time they have held a Comic Village as part of the MCM Expo group. I will also be at the events in Manchester and London later in the year. Here I am at the show meeting Peter Mayhew (of Chewbacca fame) with my friend Sarah in 2004 maybe?
I've updated the tour dates to the right LOOK---------------------------------------------->
See you there!
P.S If you buy anything from my online shop this week I will send along a FREE GIFT! That's right! GO BUY :o)
12 pages of Bison action! Bison are a highly under appreciated member of the animal kingdom and I think there is a significant lack of them in the art world. I hope to rectify this in some small way with this Bison love story and these....
Romantic Bison Pin Badges! And while you're here why not watch this clip from BBC's Planet Earth about Bison- be sure to look out for the Bison's beard flapping as he runs in the last shot.
I will also have Mousemats! As requested on twitter I have made a few trial mousemats, very limited edition. These will be exclusive to the convention but if they are popular I might add them to the online shop soon.
Magnets- FRIDGE and MR. FACEBOOK. Both come in small packets carefully presented with matching labels. Perfect for your fridge. Or metal walls.
