Happy Gnasher

HAPPY GNASHER GOES BIG

I’ve printed this image of Gnasher grinning his biggest grin in my largest size. Dennis the Menace’s faithful hound is obviously having a good day.

Beano at eighty picture roundup

Eighty years of The Beano in pictures

The Beano is 80 and to celebrate, its publisher (Britain’s top comic pubisher, DC Thomson) has rounded up a collection of the best bits, in pictures. I’m delighted to say that Comic Art screenprints feature twice: the front page of the round up includes my screenprint of The Bash Street Kids being taken home in […]
