london design festival: sequential city comics

Last night I met up with comics artist Woodrow Phoenix - in his brilliant yellow mack - at Shoreditch High Street station in East London and we walked over to Hoxton Square, where London Design Festival was in full swing.

A bunch of us are taking part in an exhibition of comics art called Sequential City themed on our relationship with London, and set up in the beautiful loft studios of Baxter and Bailey. You know all those little creatures in the margins of The Phoenix Comic, the cartoon editorial team? Well, those are the creation of Matt Baxter, half of the studio.
NEWSFLASH: They're hosting a COMICS JAM CHILDREN'S WORKSHOP this Sunday, 11-12:30pm, ages 6+, children to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. To book, e-mail

And videos! Baxter and Bailey (Matt and Dom) worked with film artist Rob Chan of Bokeh TV to interview four of the artists involved in the exhibition: me, my studio mate Gary Northfield, friend and former DFC colleague Woodrow Phoenix, and Robert Ball, whom I follow on Instagram but only met for the first time last night!
