Soho Dives, Soho Divas: Reviews
"Rian Hughes is a highly celebrated and multi skilled comic book artist. With both DC and Marvel credits and author of Culture: Ideas can be dangerous has taken his illustration skills and comic book artistry, giving him complete professional artistic licence, pandering to in his own perversions of drawing a vast series of Soho's buxom burlesque performers - the clever bastard! The drawings range from quick sketches to full blown works of comic book art which rank among the greats of Jim Lee and Frank Quitely. The book is inspiring to anyone whom has ever appreciated the female form and held a pencil at the same time. It is also an extremely impressive collection of drawings and illustration and would be enjoyed by not just fans of the comic book genre, but also by those that appreciate skill and mastery over any given craft."

IMAGE DUPLICATOR SHOW - Call for submissions
A show at the Orbital Gallery, Leicester Square, London, May 16th-31st 2013, - a week pre- and post- the end of the Tate's Lichtenstein show, with a possibility of extending it for another week after.
"Pop artist Roy Lichtensein currently has a show on at the Tate. While the public is intimately familiar with his work, what they may be unaware of is how closely many of his images were "appropriated" from comic artists like Irv Novick, Russ Heath, Jack Kirby, John Romita and Joe Kubert, who received no fee or credit. Is this an act of brilliant recontextualisation? The elevation of commercial "low" art to "high" art? Art world snobbery? Artistic licence? Cultural annexation? Gallery shortsightedness? Or something else? This show is a chance for real comic-book artists (and other "commercial artists" - illustrators, designers etc) to ask these kinds of questions and share their views, via their work."
