    Cats out of the box.

Things 2013 #9: an imaginary creature, a brave cat, a graphic novel, signs and photos

Posted by Anna Trench,

Out of the straw-stuffed Things box this week emerges the sweetest ceramic pet, two brother’s black and white graphic panel show, an epic feline adventure in wild lands, stop/go/do/don’t drawings and some recycled images. Let’s get stuck in, shall we?

Jode Pankhurst: Ippolpodge Salanewt

Last Monday morning there arrived, tenderly nestled in a cardboard box of paper straw, a delicate ceramic Ippolpodge Salanewt. The creator was Jode Pankhurst, final year illustrator at Edinburgh College of Art. Ippolpodge Salanewt is one in a series of ten tiny creatures that will never exist. Except it does exist, right now, grazing happily on this desk.

Deth P. Sun: Zines

Deth P. Sun sent us four zines all the way from Berkeley, California. There’s All I See, an A-Z crammed with inventive drawings for each letter of the alphabet, The Various Things I Eat depicting everything Deth ate for eight months, Various Drawings and They Come at Night. The latter two have a recurring feline hero who goes on epic silent adventures with only a sword and his bravery. Just wonderful.

This bespoke package delivered illustrator and printmaker Jess Wilson’s lovely risograph of Bossy Signs in New York. Sure to brighten up any wall, it may also be a reminder of that Simpsons episode when Homer goes crazy with safety signs in Springfield.

Warren & Gary Pleece: Montague Terrace

Montague Terrace is new graphic novel drawn and written by brothers Warren and Gary Pleece who together did a fair bit for self-published comics in the late eighties. Full of a host of interesting characters and events, it’s certainly an exciting read. Warren used to draw for DC and in terms of panel storytelling Montague Terrace is ambitious and very competent, but still with an indie feel.

RRR.003

RRR is a “collection of recycled art made new by an international group of talented friends.” RRR.003 was actually made available online in 2011 but Japan’s earthquake and it’s repercussions made the team rethink and reconstruct. There’s a whole load of great black and white images here in a well designed form. They reconstructed it well.
