As part of Half Bound, our everything-paper-based-extravaganza we have some amazing treats lined up. Here’s a few little snippets of what to expect!


Laurence Elliott:

 ‘A certain accusatory drawing practice underpins work which goes from Painting, ‘compromised’ print-making (i.e stencilled), through to songs & books of drawings & rant (instruction manuals for exhibited work). I want my work to read as a big dirty cross referenced soup with source material plundered from everywhere. I’m interested in outsmarting & outdumbing complex issues with conventional portraiture elements.’
Coming down from Glasgow share his books, prints, t-shirts and rants with ye! See more here: www.laurenceelliott.co.uk and here laurenceelliott.blogspot.co.uk.

Darren Cullen / Spelling mistakes Cost Lives:

 We welcome…The king of satire!
‘I am ferrying myself into town (Cardiff) next Saturday for this zine fair where I will be selling comics, prints, t-shirts and bowls of fruit/veg at prices that cannot be beat! Come and spill some beer on my precious items!
