"Horrific" Halloween Exhibition in London
The inimitable Mr. Adrian Brown has reanimated the twitching corpse of his Just 1 Page project for a Halloween-themed selling exhibition, titled Horrific, at London's Orbital Comics this weekend, with all proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Ade started the Just 1 Page project about six years ago (I think), with the idea that various people contributed one page each (whether a drawing, some words, or a comic strip) to a publication that would be sold to raise money for charity, with his contacts in the comics world (and beyond) well-exploited.
This year is a little different, as, taking advantage of the fantastic permanent gallery space in Orbital, he's mounting a selling exhibition of remaining past artwork contributions, as well as some new submissions, including my own.
Expect "original artwork by Mike Carey and Charlie Adlard, signed prints by Tim Bradstreet (Hellblazer, Punisher, Blade, Unknown Soldier), Shaun of the Dead sculptures designed by Jesse Farrell and lots more."
The exhibition runs from this Friday, the 21st, to Sunday the 23rd of October, at Orbital Comics, Great Newport Street, London WC2 (just a few seconds dash from Leicester Square tube).
There will be other related events happening over the weekend, including a reading from Mike Carey, bringing the show to a close at 3pm on Sunday. Check the Facebook page here for more current info..
If you can't make it along, but feel like supporting the cause, there is also a JustGiving page here.
The image at the top is my contribution, an A3 ink-brush drawing of an unfortunate dinosaur-faced lady whose hair is subject to a demonic possession. The bedevilled hair is vomiting out what appears to be the ghost of a dog.
So, if that's ringing your mind bells, and you fancy having it on your living room wall when you reach your dotage, best get down to Orbital this weekend.
