“Tom Humberstone has been producing and publishing comics under the alias of Ventedspleen for three years. Part of the new wave of British small-press cartoonists, his cynical, self-deprecating and vitriolic work has been likened to an English Harvey Pekar. This exhibition presents a rare opportunity to observe the creative process of constructing comic art, from the conception through to the final product. Humberstone’s original pencilled work, preparatory sketches, and early material will be on display in the gallery, with limited screen printed t-shirts and comics available in the shop. See firsthand why this underappreciated medium is deserving of a much wider audience”
I’m currently exhibiting at the Peacock Visual Arts gallery in Aberdeen.
Find out more details at their website here.
Unique screen-printed t-shirts, four badge designs, and new print runs of Art School Scum and How to Date a Girl in 10 Days (with thicker card covers than before) are available in the gallery shop and reception area. Anything that’s left will be available to buy online here and some of the centrally located London comic shops like Orbital and Gosh!
Forbidden Planet International have given the show a very kind write-up on their blog which can be read here, and the prestigious Comics Journal have even given it a small mention in their events calendar here (scroll down to the listings section).
