A Talk and Live Draw with Cartoonist Martin Rowson
At the Century Club - Soho W1

Thursday 6th April 2023; doors @ 6:30, talk begins @ 7 pm

To finish up our Comica month, join cartoonist Martin Rowson as he takes us on a rumbunctious, rollicking ride through his 40 years of ankle-biting, satirical-savaging attempts to hold the great and good to account.

During an action-packed - and possibly very messy - evening, he will be depicting (with commentary) the nine prime ministers who have been in office during his career - using ketchup, mustard, mayo, peanut butter, toilet duck and various other household condiments.

The evening will include a private view of Martin’s ‘Naked Attraction’ paintings of various prime ministers which will be exhibited alongside his ‘Gluttony’ series in the Century’s cocktail lounge during March.

Tickets £12 - please click here to purchase

Martin Rowson
Martin is a multi-award winning artist whose work has appeared in The Guardian, New Statesman, Daily Mirror, The Times, Morning Star and, indeed, almost everywhere you can think of apart from The Sun and Private Eye. He is known for being rude about nearly every significant politician of our times and The Daily Mail describes his work as “disgusting, deranged... sick and offensive”. He is the author of several books, the Vice President of The Zoological Society of London and in 2001 he was appointed Cartoonist Laureate for London by Mayor Ken Livingstone, in return for one pint of London Pride bitter per annum (still 6 years in arrears).

Comica, The London Comics Festival, at The Century Club is a VIP Brands Ltd concept, presented in association with The Lakes International Comic Art Festival, Antique Beat & A Curious Invitation.
