We are exposed throughout our lives to comic book culture starting in childhood with Super Heroes & Cartoon Characters, and then perhaps graduating to Manga, Underground Comics or Graphic Novels. Even the 1940’s detective comics, the 1950’s horror sci-fi classics, that may predate us, still manage to affect us with their nostalgic aura. To many artists comic books were the first exposure to image making – here is your opportunity to reconnect with these roots!

Although I had already submitted my artwork to the printer for this show, I especially noticed these artworks during our trip to visit London galleries.
