Exhibition Stuff + Other Stuff

The Justice Will Be So Fantastic is the second chapter in an ongoing collaboration between myself and UK band Crippled Black Phoenix (whose music will be echoing from the speakers inside the gallery throughout the opening night). Teaming up with the band on this and other projects has been the most rewarding and inspiring creative experience of my life, and this is all just the beginning. This exhibition will include ink illustrations, 1/6 scale custom toys, and a mix of paintings and stencils on skateboard decks, wooden panels, and canvases.

There will also be a performance by the Melbourne ensemble String Source on the Sunday night. I’ve always enjoyed the combination of visual art and music (the first printing of my graphic novel Lonely Monsters even came with a soundtrack) so preparing this exhibition continues to be a fantastic experience.

I’ll post additional info closer to the date, until then if you click on the below exhibition poster it will take you to my blog which has become an exhibition journal of sorts.

I’ve also been working on a few different comic projects, mostly focusing on the next chapter in the life of Leroy, as well as my webcomic The Secret History Of Skullboy (which is having a small break before returning in August), plus a few covers and pin-ups for other peoples upcoming projects. I’ll also have a shot comic story in the next issue of the anthology series Velocity, in which I’ll be revisiting the very first comic story I ever had published (in a long-dead US based anthology) and rebuilding it from scratch. It’s long been a personal favourite story, based on an old folk tale, and I’ve been wanting to return to it for awhile now and this is the perfect opportunity.

In the few spare moments I have where I’m not trying to sleep I’m also working on a series of new t-shirt designs, which I hope to have ready to start uploading soon.

Thanks

Matt
