Genius is an inadequate description for his talents…

As I’ve mentioned before, I have been keeping tabs on the gigantic task that Kellie Strøm has undertaken for his upcoming book for Nobrow entitled Worse Things Happen at Sea and every time I check back at his blog I see another morsel from his incredibly detailed masterpiece unravelling in all it’s glory before me. This latest updates adds two more mythical monsters to the mix, a Kraken attacking a Viking ship (below) and some kind of double-headed Phoenix attacking a galleon (above). The culmination of this mammoth undertaking will be one of the most awe-inspiring concertinas we have done to date and we will soon be posting a video to show you just how arduous the task has been. Keep your eyes peeled for updates, Worse Things Happen at Sea comes out in June! More images below…

In Store: Charles Burns Exhibition Catalogue

We’ve just acquired another unmissable exclusive here at the Nobrow shop.  The beautifully designed and very cool M gallery in Leuven, Belgium has, until this past weekend, been hosting an exhibition of work by cartoonist Charles Burns (Black Hole), charting his career through not only his comics work but also his many album covers, magazine covers, photography, sketches and advertising work.  To coincide with the exhibition, Beeld Beeld has published this very nicely put together catalogue of images from the show, all produced in full colour with an introduction by comics legend Joost Swarte, and we are very excited to have a bunch of copies in the store.  We only have a limited number though and they’re only available at our Great Eastern Street store, so make sure you pop in soon if you don’t want to miss out!

You can check out a video of Burns touring the exhibition here.
