A wee while ago I was invited to contribute to an exciting new magazine being published by an up and coming new publisher called NOBROW. The first issue of Nobrow printed in two colours and exploring the theme of Gods and Monsters showcases some brilliant artwork from some great artists and Illustrators. I got my copy last week and it really is beautifully designed and printed. It also smells amazing.
The launch party for the magazine's release is this thursday 14th May at Jaguar shoes in London town from 7pm and will exhibit large scale versions of the pages. Following that Nobrow will be available to purchase from a number of bookshops and galleries. For more info go to www.Nobrow.net
