RAGE! comic from 1982

The early 80's was a tense time. The world seemed on the brink of war, youth unemployment was at an all-time high and strikes and riots were commonplace. To reflect this, I began to write and illustrate a series of strips that attempted to address these concerns. The first copy of RAGE! was sold in Bristol, London and Amsterdam and was creating a buzz until its demise soon after the originals for RAGE! 2 were stolen from my apartment in Holland.

Thanks to my brother for digging this one out.

Short mini-documentary on the BRUTE! Popaganda show in Prague this month. Film maker Rory Wilmer and I spent the day walking and drinking along the river Vltava and discussing my work. Also contains scenes from the opening of the show at Mad Bar which features a short speech by yours truly on Popaganda reproduction.

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.

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.
