The Mancunian Comics artist David Bailey will be exhibiting his art in Manchester. What I've seen looks terrific and is well worth checking out if you're in the area. David's comic 'Characters of Manchester is available from Magma. Here's the press release:
The Drawings of Mount Pleasant-the lovely duo Lucy Jones and David Bailey who have terrorised the streets of Manchester with their music posters and David with his book "Characters of Manchester". well David has now got himself a little section to play with each week on the NME and well Lucy, she's just sewing and drawing all the freaking time.
private view: 17th February 6-9pm
dates: 17th Feb-15th March 2005
opening times: the usual, knock on the shutters or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
where?: 75 Port Street, Manchester, M1 2EG, 5 mins from picadilly station and it's pea green house in a somewhat rundown area with rent boys for neighbours but you'll be fine...
oh, they will draw on the walls and paste all the posters they've done for bands (like Joanna Newsom) to venues (like Night and Day) in the toilet. and I'll be serving shots of vodka during the private view : )
