Community! What Should I Do!



I'm curating this show Community! What Should I Do! at Fallon later this month.

It came about because of an exhaustion of illustration shows in London being treated as 'art' and hung in tidy wooden picture frames with price tags. While I don't think theres anything wrong with this, I became more interested in the process of illustrating a concept and how, as commercial artists, we get to that point on a regular basis. For my own work, I have collaborated with screen printer extroadinnaire, Loren Filis of Loligo on some great new work.
