Yeah we know all about the Kindle and the iPad, but here’s a nice old-school travel zine produced by Jon while visiting Bangalore, India in February. The zine is 38 pages of drawings, comics and photos. There are 100 hand-numbered copies, with the first 25 of them being signed by Jon. You can order yours for just under $8 USD here.
Hard to believe it, but here we are at our 500th post. That’s 500 items by Jon Burgerman individually artkived mostly over the past year. What better piece for the 500th post than this oldie-but-greatie discovered deep in the Doodlesplatter vaults? This clipping used to live on our About page, but it’s time to be properly filed. Lots more new stuff coming up in 2010, but we’re going to also roll out some remainders from the Decade of Doodles, so stay tuned! [P.S. Click the image for a larger picture that's easier on your tired old eyes.]
Here’s an oldie, but greatie, that Jeps got as a little A5 bonus on a big Burger order he recently placed. Jon illustrated this small book of helpful tips for the NHS a couple years back. Although his name doesn’t appear in the publication, his distinctive and full color doodles enhance every other page. I don’t drink much, myself, but I left the book out for a while to be helpful to my houseguests, because, as you know, intoxicated houseguests sure do love PSAs… Thanks Jeps for sending these scans.
[UPDATE 3/2/10: Via a serendipitous tweet, I've found the firm co-responsible for these. They are Raw: "A tightly wound coil of creativity, working as a dynamic force in the rejuvenated heart of old, industrial Manchester." They received a brief that stated: "Offer young people a wealth of information on alcohol to help them make informed decisions when it comes to drinking." And the resounding result? "A huge thumbs-up from follow-up focus groups and positive engagement with the target audience." You can read more from Raw (as well as see the original location of the new pictures I have pilfered for this post) here.]
This is a great booklet. And Jeps, I still have your scans in the artkive! If anybody out there has anything, however big or small, for the Doodlesplatter, we’d love for you to send it in!
Jon joined a roster of great artists in the second volume of Jamie Smart’s FAT CHUNK.
FAT CHUNK is a collaborative comic book featuring a collection of different artists, each contributing work based on a theme. The artists are from all over the world, based in any discipline, from well-known comic titans to fresh new webcomic talent, from influential street artists to custom toy designers, and throw them together to make one hefty and exciting comic. The aim of FAT CHUNK is to produce a great comic book featuring diverse approaches to the theme, and to open up each artist’s work to new audiences. To shout the word about artists we love, and show off some great untapped talent.
Fat Chunk Volume Two - Zombies is out now: “It adds a little rotting flesh to the mix as a variety of artists do their take on the bumbling undead.” There are over sixty artists filling just under 140 pages, and you can find it at local comic shops and on Amazon here. Thanks to Jamie for the Zombie scans!
Not everyone gets to be a centerfold, but Jon can claim the honor with this black and white “misery” doodle for Issue 2 of Doodlezine. The zine will be in A5 format, with a hand-screenprinted cover (by Bish) and “the usual stickers, rubber stamps, amazing artwork, etc.” It will be on sale at the Liverpool Artist’s Book Fair June 20-21st and in their etsy shop after that. You can also pre-order a copy by emailing doodlezine[at]hotmail[dot]com.
Doodlezine is created by Abi Whitehouse and Desdemona McCannon. Doodles happen when your mind is off the hook and your hand is holding a pen. Anyone can doodle. Doodles access thoughts you were not aware of. Doodles are surprising, beautiful, crazy and often a bit wonky.
turbochainsaw is a non-profit underground publication featuring artists, photographers and creative writers from all over the world. The Mag/zine is A5 portrait, B+W, 100pages, Perfect bound and limited to 150 copies. Jon’s work was featured in an issue.
The Wizard’s Hat is a bi-monthly zine celebrating and memorializing the enjoyment of illustration, design, art and the obsessive gesture of doodling. The Wizard’s Hat seeks to showcase a wide range of international doodle practitioners. Issue 2 is the Magic issue and features work by Jon Burgerman, Mike Perry, Damien Correll, Gemma Correll, Alex Bec, Matthew Barnes, Holly Wales, Matthew Dent, Andrew Ainger, Joel Evey, Andrew J. Miller and Jeffrey Bowman. The zine is 26 pages and sells for £4.50 (INCLUDES P&P UK ONLY) or £6.00 (INCLUDES P&P EUROPE + USA) here while available. Jon’s page can be seen above.
The Guild is a small limited edition collection of art and design that is published every now and again by Australia’s Andy Sargent. Each issue contains artwork from “friends, colleagues, and other friendly folk from all over the place.” Here is Jon’s drawing for The Guild.
Straight from Jon: “This Is A Magazine - is an art project / book / magazine, both digital and printed. v good stuff it is. i’ve appeared in a few.”
If You Could is the self-initiated project of London design studio HudsonBec. Launched in April 2006, issue one is an A5 print pack featuring twenty-one internationally renowned illustrators, responding to the theme, ‘If you could do anything tomorrow, what would it be?’ Printed in two color on 350gsm stock, all housed in a hand editioned, shrink-wrapped clam-box. Issue 2 was launched in July 2007 as the result of an open call for entries in response to the question, ‘If you could do anything tomorrow, what would it be?’ From over 350 submissions, 112 artists’ responses are included in a hand editioned, full color, 160 page, perfect bound publication. Both issues were printed in editions of 1000 and have since sold out. Preserved for posterity: Jon would eat 100 donuts.
