Jon recently installed this burgerdoodle in a grassy patch outside the Nottingham Castle Museum. His agency, Début Art, writes:
A walking burger in bloom perhaps will remind us that everything is ‘grown’ from dirt, from colourful pigments, fast food packaging and the fast food itself. Here a veggie burger is having a delightful trawl through a garden, mindful to deposit himself (and his wrapper) into a bin or compost pile once he’s done.
I dunno, man, looks like a crop circle done by aliens to me…
Maek is about originality. Maek supports the bold ethics and hard work of the creative industry. Drawing from the graft of fashion designers, graphic designers, graffiti artists, painters and photographers. We believe in self expression which is why we like to ‘ Maek it original ‘. Maek is all about creating authentic and wearable fashion accessories which are reliable in quality and built to last for both the casual and the dedicated urban individual who is creative and has attention to detail.
Nice. I like how they’ve made a pair that’s got the JB flair on the outside for the daring and then another one with doodles on the inside of the frame for folks who delight in having little style secrets. I’m not sure who’s stocking the new shades right now, so Maek advises you drop them a note through their contact page. You can also bug them on Twitter @MAEKeyewear. Which I’m about to do in 1…2…3.
For his former home city of Nottingham, Jon has created:
a series of drawings and projections in response to Street Art; Contemporary Prints from the V&A forming a semi-permanent presentation of his trademark character creations.
Papering Over The Cracks opens at the Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery on July 2nd and runs through September 25th.
Without further ado, here are some visuals from this past weekend’s Anxieteam picture disc release gig at the Nottingham Contemporary. The detail-oriented amongst you may recognize Jon’s shirt as being the one he wore in New York at the Goodbye Blue Monday show. This begs two questions: 1) Should Jeremy get a new hobby? and 2) Why doth the T-shirt king double-up? All photos were pilfered from Hello Thor’s Flickr set. A special bonus is the appearance of Amir, head honcho at the JBVLA, as the red Soya dancer. Click through to see it all. More photo documentation of the recent UK gigs is on the way!
The New Art Exchange in Nottingham is holding a free art workshop for children tomorrow, August 19th, and Jon is participating:
My Doodle World is an exhibition by Holgate school students at the New Art Exchange in Nottingham. They invite youu to verbalise your opinion about where you live and what is happening to the world and environment around you. Kids rarely get such a platform to express their views so come along to help create a unique doodle installation expressing your perspective of the world.
As part of the exhibition there will be a day of art workshops for children:
Thursday 19 August 2010, 1000 - 1630
1000 - 1300 Street Build. Lead by Jo Deighton / Tina Havill, Art Teachers from Holgate school.
Score, fold, join, rip and manipulate card to create a large 3D model of where you live. The chance to learn card construction skills, and to design and construct your house from card to create a large street installation.
1400 - 1630: JON BURGERMAN led workshop.
An amazing opportunity to meet and be inspired by the Nottingham based artist, famed for his doodling, drawing, scrawling and illustration. Art, animation and character design. Jon would like to invite you to illustrate your thoughts on where you live through doodles and help create a unique installation piece which will be exhibited alongside the workin the My Doodle World exhibition: 21 - 29 August.
Contact New Art Exchange for more info and to book you (or your child’s place on the workshop).
