Mr Reeds Meets a Squirrel

My good pal John, AKA Rememberthelittleguy has put together a beautiful new site to showcase his work.

It’s chockablock with John’s trademark cool characters, lush colours and lovely animations. I had the pleasure of working with John for a couple of years, and have always found the amount of detail and craft he packs into his work really inspiring – the new site’s worth visiting for the loading bars alone!

You can also download pdfs of John’s paper toys, including Mr Reeds, and then build them with your own fair hands.

Huzzah!!

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

huzzah1.jpg

I’m very flattered to have been invited to take part in Huzzah!!, a kind of comic art consequences where each member of a group of artists takes it in turn to draw a bit of the story. What makes it especially exciting/scary is that the other fellas are so talented, and that you only get three days to do your bit once you’ve thrown your hat in. This years theme is ‘Space Opera.’ Click on ‘The Story So Far…’ tab to see how the pages are shaping up.

The other artists involved are  I. N. J. Culbard, Dan McDaid, Dave Taylor, D’Israeli, Faz Choudhury, Colin Fawcett, paulhd and Rob Davis.

Huzzah!! will run through till December the 31st.You can see last years comic ‘Who Killed Round Robin’ here.

Saturday night is the last night of Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture and there’s going to be all kinds of exciting things going on in the city centre.

Hannah Peel and myself will be taking our live music/drawing show out onto the street, along with video maestro Mr Sam Meech.

So if you’ve never seen a werewolf drawing to a live performance of Tainted Love played on a music box then now’s your chance!

I’ll be joining Mercy to do some painting at Tate Liverpool this Saturday as part of their live art project ‘The Making‘. There’ll be poetry by Nathan Jones, music by Wave Machines, a posse of artists and illustrators and all kinds of AV voodoo going on courtesy of Sam Meech and Stuart Lancely. We’ll be there pretty much all day, so come along and say ‘hello’ or ‘what the bloody hell’s all this then?’

The above is a little concept doodle for Saturday.
