Does anyone apart from me remember Belle & Sebastian? Not the band, the other one. No, not the kids book either, the other other one. This one.
It was one of what I would like to think was a golden age of crazy European and European/Japanese co-productions that were serialized over many many weeks on kids TV and included Dogtanian and the Three Muskahounds, The Mysterious Cities of Gold, and Around the World with Willy Fog. I suspect that viewing them now would shatter some rose tinted memories, but I remember enjoying all of them along with the aforementioned Belle and Sebastian.
The reason for this long preamble is that when Jon at iam8bit got in touch and asked if I wanted to contribute to his Nickelodeon tribute show (currently showing at their LA gallery) I jumped at the chance without really having a lot of experience of the channel past bits of their original programming which drifted across the pond. Luckily it turned out that they broadcast a bunch of shows that I had watched as a youngun and so, well, you can see the print above.
Printed as ever by Parliament of Feathers and available in an edition of 30 from iam8bit (and a bunch have gone already so dont sleep on them) alongside a bunch more excellent art for the show from the likes of personal faves Jim Mahfood, Amanda Visell and Aled Lewis.
A Mario Kart piece I did that will be in Hero Complex Gallery’s “Righteous Rides” show, opening tomorrow! The limited edition print will be on sale after the opening night wraps up, I believe.
This piece was originally a project for the Game & Print Club, but we decided to change track and enter it in the coincidentally occurring appropriately themed, Hero Complex exhibit.
You can now purchase the print online at Hero Complex Gallery.
