I’m thrilled to have been invited to be part of the ArtSpace 14 Exhibition at Pan MacMillan London!
The Pan Macmillan ArtSpace is not a conventional art gallery, but rather a dynamic open plan scheme set over five floors spanning the whole of Pan Macmillan’s London HQ. The huge space accommodates over 40 large scale artworks and is regularly changed and curated by Dutch Uncle, London. The new exhibition showcases the artworks of over 30 illustrators and designers based in The Pencil Factory, Brooklyn. More about the show here.

You may have been to a place called Night Vale. No one really knows where it is, but it’s easy to get there. Maybe you were one of the hundreds of people who hit the Lakewood Theater last month for the sold-out mega-popular Twin Peaks-meets-The Twilight Zone-meets-Lake Wobegon podcast. Or maybe you are one of the hundreds of thousands of people who have made Welcome to Night Vale the most downloaded podcast in iTunes history, which—fun fact—has quite a Dallas connection. Co-writer and co-creator Jeffrey Cranor hails from Mesquite and earned some cred at Kitchen Dog Theater; Dallas-based graphic artist Rob Wilson designed the spooky logo that Night Vale fans worldwide recognize instantly. “I know Jeffrey well,” says Wilson, “so I just made a little illustration for him to use on iTunes.” Wilson, who recently created a work for the visiting Karl Lagerfeld, has been browsing Google images and has found his logo in rather unusual places. “People are taking my logo and making fan art. Like, using it on cakes and on their fingernails!”
