I was going to blog about finally going to see Kevin Smith at the Prince Charles Cinema film one his shows for a dvd he was making. Sidebare, I took a dum in the Kevin smith Toilet. But I lost my 12(th) iphone and my 1st new Iphone 4s that had the pictures of the night on it. But I was busy with work and projects that are tucked firmly in my in box. I went alone to the Private view of Stripped at Orbital Comics alone as my part was and is still fighting this raving illness and didn't feel right dragging him to a show while he stood around and watch me get drunk. The work was impressive and it's always nice to catch up with a few friendly and familiar faces.
Talking to artist Mark Wigan who's pen and inks were quite impressive and he's taste on a certain collective sparked my interest.
It was a hodge podge of Gliterratti and Trash-ah-ratti (my favourote kind) were on hand for the opening. Artist Grande Dame art really pops and her colour pallete is someting that would look great in anyones living room. All releshing the art all based on the love of comics and the iconography, set the tone for the night. A huge thaks to Jason Atomic whom was the brain child of this event and it is showing til April 1. you can purchase a postcard for a paltry £20. Thats just pennies a day for a lovely piece of art
