Here is the print I made for the Tic Toc pop up shop organised by Efdeay in cahoots with Hato Press. They invited 24 artists & illustrators to make the work and have Hato print it all within a 24 hour timeframe, each was then printed in an edition of 24 and sold at the shop for the 24 hours it was open. Some really rad people were involved like Ian Stevenson, Peter Nencini, Luke Ramsey, Daniel Swan, etc so a big thanks to the efdeay crew for asking me to get involved.
Mine is Exodus, about the ship of the same name taking refugees to British Palestine in the hopes of setting up the state of Israel. Have been wanting to make a little book about it of some sort but this was a nice stop-gap before that happens, if ever.
Sorry the picture is so small, I don't actually have a copy so had to steal it off the internet but you can buy your own from the Hato Press website here.

Here are some photo's from my Great Anarchists launch the other week. Thanks so much to everyone who came, it was a really fun night. These photo's were taken by Fiona Allison so thanks to her particularly, and the whole Sauna crew for letting me use the space. I showed the drawings from the zine and a couple new ones, alongside the quotes with a couple extras, and made a video we had on loop throughout the night to give some more context and background to the different strands of anarchism that are represented in the zine, & also had a specially 'curated' (lol) anarcho zine distro selling texts from some of the people featured (Flores Magon, De Cleyre, Lucy Parsons) alongside some of my other zines (One-Nil, new one Crime Scenes, Maxho) and some of the more interesting newer texts of late (Tiqqun, Coming Insurrection, that kind of stuff). I hope everyone had a rad time, the zine of course is still available and so are the other stuff I was hocking on the night - get from my distro.
