Lorenzo Mattotti & Dave McKean

Posted: February 12, 2011

On Saturday March 12th, mesmerising Italian maestro Lorenzo Mattotti makes a rare visit to London to discuss his career in comics and beyond, including his latest graphic novel Stigmata, translated by Fantagraphics, and his collaborations, from his animated terrors in the movie Fear(s) of the Dark to illustrating Lou Reed’s concept album The Raven. Joining Mattotti in conversation will be his friend and fellow artist Dave McKean, famed for his multi-media solo projects, most recently the erotic graphic novel Celluloid, and his works with Neil Gaiman notably on The Sandman. Introduced and hosted by Comica Director, Paul Gravett, don’t miss this opportunity to witness a unique encounter between two of the world’s greatest contemporary visionaries from 6pm to 7.30pm followed by book signings at Goldsmiths University in South-East London.

Big, big thanks are due to the London Comic & Small Press Expo being held all day Saturday for providing the brilliant venue. And this special event would also not be possible without the support of the Falmouth University Open Illustration Forum taking place on Friday March 11th, which has brought Lorenzo Mattotti over and also invited John Vernon Lord, Orly Orbach and George Hardie for what promises to be a fascinating day of exchanging ideas and which I will be chairing.

Tickets: £3
Where: Great Hall, Goldsmiths University, New Cross, London
When: Saturday, March 12, 2011 - 6pm to 7.30pm
