A little while back NoBrow, a fresh and exiting new publisher based in London, invited me to contribute to their first book "Gods and Monsters". Obviously I jumped at the chance, with a title like that what was I supposed to do?! The pitch was that each artist create an image with that title using only black and one colour, a colour specified by the guys at NoBrow, namely Pantone 312 U. The double page spread image would be "silent" so would have to do all the talking itself. (see image below...a sneaky peek at my contribution)

What follows is some blatant advertising!

To celebrate the release of this first publication ‘Gods and Monsters’ the NoBrow guys will be exhibiting all the work from the edition in large scale format at Bar and exhibition space;DreamBagsJaguarShoes.
