Robert Rubbish on how he tells anecdotal stories of Soho using illustration

Robert Rubbish, a founding member of the iconic illustration collective Le Gun, took to the Nicer Tuesdays stage in June to discuss his latest project, Spiritus Soho.

Anyone who has been wandering around Soho for long enough will have spotted Robert on Wardour Street or sipping a drink in The French House. Over several decades the illustrator has gathered up numerous stories and brilliant anecdotes, from local legends to the neighbourhood stars of the area. Robert has stored them all up, bringing them back to his studio to translate into illustration adding his historical knowledge of the area with an imaginative narrative too.

At our June event Robert took us through his journey as a child dreaming of London to going to the Royal College of Art and falling in love with a square mile full of eccentricities: Soho.
