London cable TV channel London Live invited me on to their lunchtime news programme to talk about Dennis the Menace at 65 – and my exhibition celebrating the occasion.
You can see the show here: http://www.londonlive.co.uk/news/2016-03-29/dennis-the-menace-turns-65
Show presenter Stefan Levy and I talk about how Dennis has changed over the years (he has gone through various incarnations from pocket Satan to thuggish youth to rebellious scamp) but doesn’t actually seem to have aged.
A week ago I was on BBC London Radio – you can hear me on the Jo Good show, broadcast on 23 March 2016 at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03m3qr1
I’m on during the first half-hour, and appear after about 13 minutes.
And, to confirm, my show runs until Sunday April 3, at The Showcase in St John’s Square, Clerkenwell, EC1M 4DS.
Tuesday – Friday: 9am – 7pm
Saturday & Sunday: Noon – 4pm.
The focus will be Dennis, and there will be a new edition of the very first DTM strip from 1951, but there will also be my other screenprints of all kinds.
I am the first screenprinter in Europe to have permission to use the archive of French publisher Editions Albert Rene to make screenprints.
I have a similar relationship with Britain’s top comics publisher, DC Thomson, to make screenprints of its icons from The Beano, The Dandy, The Victor, Commando and The Sunday Post. These include Dennis the Menace, Minnie the Minx, Desperate Dan, The Bash Street Kids, Rodger The Dodger, Lord Snooty, Beryl The Peril, Alf Tupper, Oor Wullie and The Broons. Olive Oyl and Popeye are also in by stable of world comic icons.
