Great launch party last week for the interactive Superheroes exhibition that I just finished working on with the lovely folk at the Discover Children's Story Centre in Stratford so here's a few photographs of the exhibition (& a couple of me looking silly too!)
Big thanks everybody at Discover for being delightful to work with & for all their brilliant work in making the exhibition work so well

Animated intro for the interactive Superheroes Exhibition at the Discover Children's Story Centre featuring square jaws, a surfeit of cape-ery & a glimpse of a Super-Villain to boot! See it here

Love a bit of pomade me! (This is a tiny segment from a new book I've been drawing - but so tiny it won't make any difference if I show you but shhhhhhh!)
I used to have a hairdresser who suddenly overnight became allergic to all such 'product' (as they term it in the coiffeuring trade) very distressing all round - it'd be like me becoming allergic to pencils or something...
( see also 'Look mom, no hands' )
These are the finished comic strips that go with the children's Superheroes exhibition that I've just finished working on. They introduce the superheroes A,E,I,O & U in their battle against the evil vowel snatching villain Y. (all superheroes need a good origin story!)
The exhibition (which makes me wish I was 6 years old again!) is at the Discover Children's Story Centre in Stratford & is open until the 4th November - more details here

I visited the Superheroes exhibition this morning - it's all looking really great, the folks at the Discover Children's Story Centre have done an amazing job, photos to follow. Today I got to wear a cape, sit in a Super Car & got given badges & comics too - yay!

Here's a selection of the comic strips I produced for the Superheroes exhibition at the Discover Children's Story Centre in Stratford, East London showing the origins of the main characters. The superheroes A, E, I, O & U are battling the dastardly villain Y who is stealing all the vowels from Alphabet City!
I was commissioned to design the superhero & super villain characters & the the urban environment the exhibition is set in (including lots of fun with signs & animals! : )I also produced some animated clips for the interactive parts of the exhibition
The exhibition opened on Sunday 1st April & will run until 4th November - I haven't had a chance to see the finished piece yet, looking forward to it loads.
