Newcastle Stories … and that :  ‘Urban Fictions’

31 May 2014 at The Late Shows 

The PJCC exhibition and anthology launch

The launch of the Paper Jam Comics Collective‘s tenth anthology, Newcastle Stories, took place at the Holy Biscuit as part of The Late Shows 2014. As any novocastrian knows, The Late Shows are annually one of the most exciting art events in the North East of England and we were very proud to have had this opportunity to take part.

As well as artwork exhibited by the collective, and the launch of our anthology, the exhibition included prints, collages and photography on the subject of Urban Fictions, and a Board Game simulating the not inconsiderable terror of Newcastle’s Bigg Market. The game was created by the excellent Mike Jeffries of Northumbria University (Mike was also a great source of wisdom during the early development of the Newcastle Science Comic project).

I had two pieces in the exhibition and comic: Schwitters and Calvert, I also designed the back cover and the PJCC logo.
