Keepin Up with... Kid Acne


Hello Everyone

I bring news from yonder...
KILL YOUR DARLINGS
The first Kid Acne solo show in South Yorkshire continues to run at Museums Sheffield: Millennium Gallery until October 23rd. Part retrospective, part installation, Kill Your Darlings was apparently the busiest opening since their Vivienne Westwood retrospective in 2008. Word.


STABBY WOMEN - Part 1
Within the exhibition is this collaborative film piece created alongside director, Dscreet and composer, Cherrystones. Now available online for those of you that can't make it to the Steel City. Hold tight for Stabby Women - Part 2.
View video here


SOUTH YORKS - Vol. 2
Slick Dixxx and I continue to delve deep into Knife & Forkshire edutainment entercation. Tenuous as ever, South Yorks Vol. 2 is dedicated to those of you who read sleeve notes like to play Seven Degrees of Kevin Bacon.



ZEBRA FACE x TOYKYO
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of our Zebra Face book, we’ve teamed up with Belgium’s finest, Toykyo to produce this limited run of porcelain salt and pepper shakers.
Hold tight for the animated series (at long last). Roll on 2012!



KID ACNE x THORNBRIDGE
Not only did award winning brewery, Thornbridge provide the bar for my exhibition launch, they also created an exclusive Vienna-style lager to accompany it.
Kill Your Darlings (the drinkable version) is available from a select number of pubs for the duration of the show and is really rather tasty. Cheers.



TTC CROWD SCENE
I drew this party scene back in 2002 for Parisian rap trio, TTC. It was intended to be the gatefold image for their debut album on Big Dada/Ninja Tune. However, once I'd finished the artwork the record label confessed they couldn't afford to produce a foldout Lp so it was printed on the inside of a regular sleeve, where it couldn't be seen. Hand-pulled screenprint onto high quality 300gsm Somerset stock. Edition of 25.



COLOUR ME BAD - Customised Edition
The first edition of my ‘unofficial’ exhibition catalogue has now sold out at the gallery. I held back 100 copies which I’ve customised with a 2 colour illustration on the inside cover + numbered and embossed them on the back.
36 printed pages + 4 colour cover on heavy duty uncoated stock. Loving printed in traditional Risograph.



Thank you for your continued interest and support.
See you in the Winter. x
