John Butcher prints and more

The above are very special screenprints with added pencil, pen and collage by the best markmaker in Manchester, John Butcher aka Alex Humphreys. Each one is a real one off, different colours, different drawings and marks, basically the bargain of the Teens(the Tens? the Tweens?) so far at just £4 each. We have ten prints (roughly a5 in size) adorning the wall, I'll be sad to see them all go but go they must...DIG DEEP! They're shrinkwrapped too hence the shine and none too perfect photographic depictions above.

More a5 classic prints below by Manchester illustrator, Craig John Barr, each a run of twenty. Fine linework, fine subject matter : Neil Young, Charles Schulz and Twin Peaks. Three of the biggest legends in showbusiness. £3 each

Next up, Laura Skilbeck, also of Manchester, kicks it via her continuous inking system and via some sweet illustrations with these prints below and more instore. £4 for the A3 prints and £6 for the ice cream screenprinted teatowel - act fast on that though, only one left!

Here's a quick blitz of the shop classics that have previously gone unblogged...

ARKO PLEX by Rasmus Svensson, probably my favourite zine from Cafe Royal. Each spread is a total bonanza of tweaked perspectives, pencilled patterns and textures and bizarro scenes. Classique. £3.50

Turbochainsaw 5, UK compendium of illustration and ARGHustration from all places including Alexander Binder, Liquidpig, Maya Bloch, Craig Scott, Cazzimir M, Jon Vaughn, Debbie Sharples, Nathan Appel and more. Crude. £6

Mediocralypse by Gareth Brookes (Banal Pig of London). Handprinted cover containing fun short skits and scats on a number of subjects. Worth it for the messed up Grandad confession above alone. £3

Gin Palace, comic anthology curated by and starring Bolton comic wizard, Rob Jackson (creator of the outstanding Great Deeds Against the Dead series). A good many other comic talents feature including Francesca Cassavetti (pictured above), Dave Hughes, Jarod Rosello and more. £2.50

Lots more new arrivals and recent arrivals have yet to be blogged, stay tuned for that or come in and see them in real life...IMAGINE!
