Off The Shelf

Art + Culture Magazine
November 2012

What, that time again... yeees!

Ron English's 'Combrat Rising' decorates the front cover with florid colours of a child holding a lovely pink guitar machine gun. He also has the honour of curating this political and arty issue.

Between the covers there is plenty of the mesmerising and brilliant pics, full of juicy goodness like interviews, reviews, party shots, pop life and tons more.

What's in the contents we hear you ask?:
Shepard Fairy - He made an appearance in the Simpson as himself in 2012
Tom Forsythe - In 1999, Matel sued him for his depiction of their premier toy, Barbie
Susan Saladoff - Began her career as a public interest lawyer.
Robbie Conal - He created poster art for the 2012 film Contagion.
Trustocorp - Fighting against apathy.
Molly Crabapple - "I learnt to draw in a Parisian bookstore".
Ernesto Yerena Montejano - He interns and collaborates with Shepard Fairy.
John Law - Dogs on a trailer.
Dread Scott - I am not a man
Morgan Spurlock - Mr Super Size Me.

We hit one of our favourite coffee shops to do the shoot - sit back, relax and check inside...


It's great but don't just take our word for it, go on Logo for more.

Zombie Revolution... Aftermath

 They Hit London, UK

RDC: On the Saturday 27th of October the walking dead took over the South Bank to wreak havoc on us warm bloods. Alice one of the organizers, got in touch to give us the bloody outcome... 


From 6.30pm hundreds of zombies began to congregate outside Tate Modern,  they were directed into the cafe to get a zombie inspired beverage and check their MP3 downloads worked in preparation for the revolution. An announcement was made at 7.30pm and the zombies all gathered outside Tate Modern. The zombies were asked to count down from 10 and then all press play on their MP3's. A narrative explained the reason for the revolution and the need for zombie rights! And that they marched onto Westminster to demand to see the Prime Minister and sink their teeth into him!

They lurched along the South Bank, stopping at various points to take part in synchronize actions (moaning, lurching and general drooling) leaving the public wondering what an earth was happening!

To finish they turned up the music... Bee Gees Staying Alive- celebrating that the Prime Minister has been bitten... Geeerrrrr!!
