I'm going to be doing a talk/workshop called 'The art of parody — what makes a good satirical poster?' at the UK's first anti-advertising conference bringing together activists, artists, planners and community campaigners, in Bristol next month.

Very happy to say my 'Great War' print has been acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum for their poster collection.

They have the original 1915 poster already so it should make for a good companion piece.

It appeared in bus stops last year as part of a project in collaboration with Veterans For Peace UK marking 100 years since the end of the senseless slaughter of WWI.
