Fred Blunt is an illustrator and comic artist, who first came to my attention with his work in Jim Medway’s online Comical Animal anthology. His style is lovely, his line delightful, reminiscent of classic 50s cartoons – have a look at his site, blog, or Flickr and you’ll soon see what I mean.
Well, Fred’s been in touch about his forthcoming “Doodles At The Arts Centre” event, from September 10th -16th as part of Swindon’s Open Studios Event.
I’s an exhibition of published illustrations, comic strips and “random doodles“, with a mixture of digital prints and originals artworks for sale. In addition to that Usborne Books will be selling signed copies of Blunt’s children’s books too. On the event’s opening day – 10th September; Blunt will be there to chat, sketch and doodle – and he wants some young artists there on the day to join in with his doodling. Here’s just one of the prints that will be up on the day:
We’ll leave you with Fred’s Marty Cheeseman from Comical Animal and an illustration from Stop That Cow, one of his Usborne picture books (written by Mairi Mackinnon). Much more I’m sure, at the exhibition.
