Here at Print Club London HQ we were inundated with hundreds of submissions all themed around BOOKS! Collectively the team chose just 50 of the most impressive pieces to print and exhibit at Blisters: The Paperback Edition. All the pieces featured in the show have a close connection with the artists, they created based on their favourite childhood book, quotes or even favourite author! Blisters is a platform to give the artists and even playing field, young emerging talent exhibiting alongside established artists and illustrators such as Rob Ryan and Chris Haughton.
‘My inspiration for this work is a line take from a famous Dylan Thomas play called Under Milk Wood. The story follows a day in the lives of a group of Welsh characters who inhabit the fictional town of Llareggub. The line ‘Fishing Boat Bobbing Sea’ is a form of onomatopoeia meaning a word or sentence that sounds just like what it describes. The four simple words placed next to each other have an amazing visual poetry to them that is almost impossible to forget once you have read them. It also is the perfect line to translate into a poster illustration’ – Chris Keegan
