We were recently featured in the new ROJO/ Absolut collaboration ‘Absolut 2140’, created by David Quiles Guilo.
Absolut 2140 is a ‘stereo-storytelling ’ novel featuring texts by 20 Brazilian writers and visual works by 30 international artists.

Le Gun showed our shamanic ambulance from the V & A at Drawing Now Paris 2014, with Galerie Suzanne Tarasieve. We had a lovely time over there and the ambulance was acquired by a French collector…
We have a Genesis Launch signing at Forbidden Planet on London’s Shaftesbury Avenue, with me and contributors @RobertMBall and @MattTaylorDraws, from 1pm to 2pm on Saturday the 19th April.
We’ll have Ian McQue’s special variant cover version of our Image Comics graphic novel (yes- a book with a variant cover) and will sign whatever you bring. Both books cost under a fiver and the Ian McQue version is limited to 500 copies and exclusive to FP.
See you there.
Forbidden Planet say:
Alison Sampson is a London based architect and illustrator. She has been responsible for leading and contributing to a number of large and familiar, widely published and award-winning projects across the capital, working with the Richard Rogers Partnership, Will Alsop, Avanti Architects, Bennetts Associates and John McAslan & Partners, amongst others. This is her debut full length comic, hopefully the first of many.
Robert Ball is a London based designer and illustrator who has worked for the likes of BBC, Sky, Sony, Wired Magazine, The National Gallery and the V&A. His debut comic Winter’s Knight: Day One won the 2013 Best British Comic award, the second part of which he really should be getting on with.
Matt Taylor is an illustrator and comic book artist who lives deep in the Sussex countryside. He spends his days channelling Americana, the great outdoors and 50’s comic book art into illustrations for the likes of The New Yorker, Mondo, Burton Snowboards and many others. His first published comic work will be April’s Zero #7 and there is lots more to come…
Both Matt and Rob (see above) have made beautiful pieces of art which are included in our book, and will be on hand to discuss this and anything else they are working on.
Matt’s piece will be revealed on Monday.
In London, next Saturday afternoon. We may also go to the pub.
Kiehl’s recently commissioned me to do some artwork inspired by their Olive Fruit Oil hair collection!
chuffed that my illustrations for McDonalds have been selected to be featured in the next volume of Lürzer’s 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide.
