The very talented Ryan Andrews is running a Kickstarter to raise funds for publishing a collection of his illustrated short stories ‘Nothing is Forgotten‘, ‘Sarah and the Seed‘ and ‘Our Blood Stained Roof‘. The images of the book look amazing; with its French Folds and Sewn Binding. I’m really looking forward to getting mine in the post. Ryan has already reached his target amount but if you’re looking to pick up an original drawing or print this is a good way of going about it. You can find our previous post about Ryan Andrews here.
I don’t know why I like David Shrigley’s work so much, it’s badly drawn and a lot of it make no sense but when it’s good it’s sharp and very funny.
“Shrigley finds humour in flat depictions of the inconsequential, the unavailing and the bizarre – although he is far fonder of violent or otherwise disquieting subject matter.”
David Shrigley’s exhibition ‘Brain Activity’ runs until 13th May at the Hayward Gallery in London. Watch his presentation at Offset 2009 below and David’s first adventures into the realm of video art which is a take on minimalist artist Martin Creed’s controversial Turner prize winning work entitled ‘The Lights Going On and Off..’.
Great illustrations from California and Japan based Artist Ryan Andrews. Ryan Andrews works with ink, watercolour and a bit of Photoshop to create his dark and moody comics and illustrations.
Ryan has a very insightful entry in his blog about the process he uses to create his work here. I really recommend that you check out his comics / graphic silent short-stories ‘Nothing is Forgotten‘ and his new story ‘Sarah and the Seed’. You can find even more work on Ryan’s blog.
Cheers to Feargal for showing me Ryan’s work.
