Love Comics - Hate Trump




We are all in this together. You and me.
The World must unite now to fight Fascism and Intolerance.
We can make a beautiful world for ourselves, our neighbours and our loved ones.

Make art, make noise, challenge, help others, welcome strangers, make friends, volunteer your time, be kind, and have fun.
I really do believe we can make a difference. Now is not the time to be quiet.

Let's make some fucking noise.
Hold the line.

Love,
Rufus

2000ad's 40th Anniversary event, 11th February 2017

2017 is a big year for 2000 AD, the Galaxy's Greatest Comic book.

Not only does "Galaxy's Greatest Comic" celebrate its 40th anniversary, but it'll do so with a special one-day live event being held in London next February which I will be attending and sketching at, I'll also have a special exclusive print on sale!

The comic helped creators such as Alan Moore, Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons and Grant Morrison find fame, and guests at the live event will include those from the long history of the title, including Judge Dredd creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, as well as Watchmen artist Gibbons, Suicide Squad writer Rob Williams, Slaine artist Simon Bisley and Criminal and Kill Or Be Killed's Sean Phillips. Alongside signings, programming at the day-long show will also include what publisher Rebellion is calling "one-of-a-kind spectacles befitting the legacy of the finest comic book export the U.K. has ever produced."

"2000 AD is the crown jewel of British comics," 2000 AD editor Matt Smith said in a statement. "February’s festival will be an explosive celebration – not only of the achievements of the creators for the past forty years, but also a chance to thank the fans for their continued loyalty across the decades."

The event, titled 2000 AD: 40 Years of Thrill Power, will take place at the Novotel London West on Feb. 11!  (It's sold out already!)

See you there!

Revised TANK GIRL LIFE DRAWING DATE!

Due to illness, I missed the Orbital TANK GIRL themed Life drawing class a few weeks ago....

To make up for it.. ART MODEL COLLECTIVE have rescheduled it for Ticketholders!

So on February 17th, at 7pm, I will be there with Art Model collective at Orbital Comics in London's glorious West End!
They will be dressed up as Tank and Jet girl.... I will be bringing Original art and Props from the Tank Girl books by both myself and Jamie Hewlett so the life drawing class can check it out, then I will be doing some sketches for people too! I'll have a few goodies to give out to people!

There may be a few spare tickets due to the rescheduling...so contact Orbital Comics to find out if you can sneak in and join us!
