We’re very happy to be part of The Cartoon Museum’s excellent new exhibition, The Great British Graphic Novel open today and running until the 24th July at 35 little Russell Street, London WC1A 2HH. Featuring the work of such greats as “William Hogarth, Kate Charlesworth, Dave Gibbons, Martin Rowson, Posy Simmonds, Bryan and Mary Talbot and many others”.
And a big PB thank you to Paul Williams, Anita O’Brien and everyone else involved in putting on the exhibition and last night’s private view.
This Friday , September the 20th at around tea-time, everyone’s favourite 70 something amateur natterer, Alby Figgs, returns for brand new adventures in psych-babble street philosophy and elasticated truth stretching. After this season 2 opener, there’ll be a new monthly schedule, every first Friday from October, expanded stripage (two tiers–good), full colour colouring in and a brand new wooly jumper.
All this at the ridiculous cost of no pence to you. Keep your browsing fingers and thumbs hovering over this link http://albyfiggs.wordpress.com/ till then!
Just in case you missed Alby Figgs staring in his own, pretentiously colour-themed, Bafta neglected ‘arthouse’ trilogy, Arthouse Bleu, Coffee House Brun and Artehaus Weis, ketchup now just to say ‘you were there, first’. Or second or third or…
This week, everybody’s favourite septuagenarian street sage (?), Alby Figgs, gets down with the kids in the arcade for a run-through of recent and not so recent tele-visual broadcasting history.
And if you missed last week’s palm-fringed outing, check out Alby in shades in Canned Heat, still showing here http://wp.me/p2xlpi-2r
This week’s Alby Figgs episode sees Alby in ‘Day of the Dead’. Will there be zombies, skeletal automatons emerging from the graveyard, ghoulish apparitions scaring 50 shades of shite out of us? Or, just a man with a handy hankie to hand? It doesn’t get much more rock ‘n’ roll than this! No, honest, it doesn’t!
This week’s Alby Figgs episode sees the tension mounting, as Alby confronts (scarpers from) his ‘Nemesis’. Could it be? Is it possible? Who’d ‘ve thought? Where’s his washboard? Et cetera. Catch the latest brand new episode here http://wp.me/s2xlpi-nemesis
This week’s Alby Figgs episode, ‘Going Albyground’, sees Alby face an unwelcome truth on the Tube. Will he be deterred? Can he overcome years of London Transport’s antisocial conditioning?
The latest Alby Figgs episode sees Alby take a stroll down ‘Memory Lane’. Yeah, I know, hard to believe, but true! Follow the footsteps of Geezer Gus, Dolly DD and Ted Turncoat the Teddy Boy Tailor, right here http://wp.me/p2xlpi-25
And in case you missed last weeks thrill engorged instalment, ‘Milk Bar’, here’s a handy link to that particular dairy flavoured gem http://wp.me/p2xlpi-20
Yes, he’s a big fan of the local library! The Library of the Subconscious, of course. This week’s Alby episode, ol’ Figgsy manages to get Bob the Builder and French philosopher, Jean Baudrillard in the same sentence. Has this ever been done in comics form before? And if not, why not?!
Check it out at the check out, here http://wp.me/p2xlpi-1T
The latest Alby Figgs episode, Fellini, available here at http://wp.me/p2xlpi-1O focuses on Alby’s small parts (watch it!) in movie making history. That’s right missus…
