Here’s another poster for an event at the Vic: this one a second-hand CD sale. The practical part of me hopes there aren’t too many bargains, the music fan in me will be there all afternoon.
Here’s a few snaps from my gig poster exhibition a couple of weeks ago:
I was glad to be asked to put together the exhibition and took the opportunity to get some good quality prints made up of gig posters I’ve designed in the last few years, 12 of which went up in the barn.
The framed prints looked good together, although it’s funny looking at several pieces of work together for the first time and noticing things like colours I tend to use or not, and a majority of characters facing towards the right (is this due to reading left to right or to being right-handed? Not sure).
A few other things I learnt:
- framing pictures takes a surprisingly long time, even if you double-check for dust on the glass before putting the back on… there’ll still be a speck or two that needs wiped off again.
- it’s very difficult working out how to price at a cost that’s reasonably likely to sell and to allow one to break even! But it’s definitely worth the experience.
- the people of Hitchin love pictures of sheep, and comics about demons.
Some of the remaining prints will be going up inside the Vic this week; the pub hangs a lot of interesting work from local artists, so I’m pleased to be among them.
Exciting news! To tie in with the Oxfam fundraiser at the Victoria on 7th September, for which I drew a new poster, I’ll be displaying a selection of my previous gig artwork on the walls of the Barn.
I’ll have quality new prints of posters for gigs by local and touring bands around Herts and elsewhere, including Jeffrey Lewis, the Primitives, the Astronauts, Tubelord, the October Game, and my series of cartoon animals drawn for Live Circuit.
For anyone who can’t make the gig on the Saturday, the exhibition will be open from the evening of Thursday 5th, and I’ll have prints, postcards and comics for sale.
Thanks to Ganda Media for a great job on the prints!
Colour version of a flyer I was asked to draw for the Astronauts, one of a weekend full of gigs organised by Rhythms of the World in place of the festival this year. Great line-up too!
Here’s a recent portrait commissioned for a wedding gift.
Catching up on recent illustration, here’s a poster for Hey! Fever no. 2, which took place last month in Brighton. A good time was had by all, and I especially enjoyed the Holy Orders, who travelled all the way from Hull and delivered a storming set.
Another new gig poster, this one for the reformed local stalwarts Scum of Toytown. Idea pinched, with permission, from a friend’s discussion of unwieldy stagewear!
