BRUTE! Exhibition – Prague


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

BRUTE! Tohuvabohu Swordgirl Original


Another element from the Tohuvabohu art file.

This is the original ink art that was scanned in to complete the album cover.

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: bruteprop@gmail.com

(If unsold in three weeks, I will then put it up for auction on eBay).

I‘m often asked how much preparatory work goes into each album cover I do and this series of rough conceptual work goes some way in illustrating how the final design comes about.
3 months before the final artwork was completed, I started outlining the various ideas I had for the sleeve and a slew of pictures emerged from the process which Sascha and I discussed before I began to build the final image.
Now, I am able to present these images for sale. Anyone interested, please leave your contact details in the comments box below or contact me via our Gmail account bruteprop@gmail.com and I’ll provide prices and size details.
All the above are rendered in black indian ink and signed.

KMFDM Animation Frames Unearthed


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.
