In order that as many people as possible understand what is going on, propaganda must be disseminated in all quarters of the media. Starting from the street.
During my long-postponed visit to the UK this month, I came across a number of original artworks.
Stored in air-tight folders and packed into a steel chest, items from the early to late 90’s (including a number of animation frames and storyboards from the two animations I did for KMFDM) came to light as well as a treasure trove of ink originals, sketch books, silkscreens and graphic porn – all in perfect condition.
I will be auctioning many of these rare items on eBay in a month or so, so please keep watching this space.

I decided, after several requests, to stage an exhibition of my work at a small bar gallery in Prague’s famous Mala Strana district.
The owners of Mad Bar (Plaska 5, Praha 5), keen promoters of modern art, suggested I use their restaurant to display my Popaganda-themed work. Instead of using the more intense images for which I’ve become known, I instead chose a selection of more colourful creations.
This is also the first time I’ve employed the digital print-to-canvas system and I was very impressed with the results (although it didn’t work so well with the black-heavy prints).
The gallery organiser turned out to be useless so Zuzana, my Czech girlfriend and PA, stepped in to organise the prints and help with the installation while I sent out eVites and set up Facebook events to promote the show.
Installation was pretty quick and glitch-free thanks to a fluid hanging system employed by the architects to protect the heritage building.
A last minute problem with the burning of the showreel led to me missing Gilbert Shelton and Robert Crumb’s talk at the Lanterna across the bridge from the exhibition but there was a healthy turn-out for the event with several skate decks and canvases sold.
Show ends July 13th
Hand-drawn with brush-pen and rapidograph, this 5”x7” illustration was the definitive final version before I traced it in Illustrator and coloured it.
I am now proud to present it for sale, price 275 euros (incudes shipping and handling). Contact: email@example.com
(If unsold in three weeks, I will then put it up for auction on eBay).
A fan recently sent me two frames from the KMFDM animation ‘Drug Against War’ which I worked on with H-Gun Studios in Chicago, circa 1993. The top one is a three cel composite (additional inking by Pete Moriarty) while the one below is the basic illustration which was later coloured in Photoshop and animated in Director.
Special thanks to the Bert Bosman collection.
