He’s spoken at our events, drawn pictures for books we’ve produced, sent us sweet records he’s illustrated – and we follow him on the Instagram like a bunch of obsessive stalkers – but somehow, SOMEHOW, we’ve not dedicated a proper post to the master of laid-back-wave-riding and frenzied-cycling illustration that is Stevie Gee. Until now. Sorry Stevie.
Despite this glaring error it’s a pretty timely first post as Stevie’s just launched a brand new show with some equally gifted collaborators across the pond. Folklore is currently on show at the Joshua Liner Gallery in New York and features a range of hand-crafted work from the likes of Nathaniel Russell, Evan Hecox, Ed Templeton, Stephen Powers and Stevie himself. As ever with shows like this we’re pretty peeved not to be able to go in person, but by all accounts it’s well worth checking out. It’s got surfboard fins painted as moustachioed dudes in it, how could it not be worth checking out.
Folklore runs at the Joshua Liner Gallery until August 2.
