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.
Discovery of lost 9/11 series.
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll provide prices and size details. All the above are rendered in black indian ink and signed.
Another assortment of original ink sketches, roughs and composites for various art projects completed in 2008. As usual, to purchase any of these illustrations, please either leave your request in the ‘comments’ box below or contact me email@example.com
After my earlier illustration was deemed ‘too morbid’ by KPMG execs, I decided to do a friendlier version. These composites were used to create the pic and I am offering the original inks for sale. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for prices
