Today’s show: Diary Drawings and autobiographical comics

May 22, 2008

Strip!: Diary Drawings and autobiographical comics
Alex Fitch talks to curator Sarah Lightman and gallery director Andrew Hewish about the Diary Drawings exhibition at the Centre for recent drawing in Islington, London. Alex and Sarah discuss the various styles of diary drawing in the exhibtion from the most literal examples, to blog entries and gag strips while Alex discusses with Andrew the history of the gallery and the necessity to have an exhibition space that concentrates on artists’ drawings in particular. Artists in the group show being discussed include Gabrielle Bell, David Blandy, Oliver East, Alex Fox, Miriam Katin, Sarah Lightman, Lady Lucy, Mio Matsumoto, Rutu Modan, Ariel Schrag and Rebecca Swindell.
Alex also talks to a couple of small press comic book creators who work in autobiographical comics – Oli Smith and Sean Azzopardi – about their continuing success selling comics in Camden Market and beyond; about their recent diary work (Weekend Friends and the collected version of 12 Hour Shift respectively) and how they’re both now collaborating with other comic book artists to produce work in the fantasy genre.
