Opening this Friday Gallery 1988 presents ‘Required Reading’ a group art show based on popular literature. One of many reasons why the movie alphabet has been so sporadic but will be worth the wait once its done. I couldn’t say no to a chance to get to interpret one of my all time favourite books. See if you can guess what book it is and leave it in the comments below.
Remember when I said I would have the second round of Meagan’s Movie Alphabet finished by the end of October? Well we both know that didn’t happen but with good reason I got involved in an awesome exhibition opening next Thursday in Dublin.
On December 5th at BLOCK T, Smithfield Square, Damn Fine Print will be hosting their end of year hand pulled screen print spectacular ‘Sounds Damn Fine’. This year’s theme is iconic music and song lyrics and the mega poster exhibition will feature original artwork from 30 of Dublin’s hottest artists including Chris Judge, Peter Donnelly, Niall McCormack, RED DOG Design, David Uda and many more. Once again there will be 30 artworks X 30 editions on sale for a bargain of 30 euro; beats from the city’s finest DJs, visuals from VJ extraordinaire Slipdraft, live screenprinting and beer to quench your creative thirst. PLUS we have teed up OFFSET founder Richard Seabrooke to officially unveil their brand spanking new studio.
Sounds like a Damn Fine night out to us.
30 Artists. 30 editions of each print. A mere €30 a pop.
WHEN - Thursday 5th of December
TIME - From 6pm – 12:00 am
WHERE - BLOCK T, Smithfield Square (beside the luas track)
Profits from the print sale will go back into A new Damn Fine print studio @ BLOCK T An affordable, accessible and creative print hub for people living and working in the City – a place to create, collaborate and learn.
All Prints in the show have been screen printed in the Damn Fine Print Studio Block T

This isn’t W for Meagan’s Movie Alphabet but its a nice coincidence.
Hollywood Babylon launched their new season last week in Block T with an exhibition showcasing specially commissioned limited edition screen print movie posters for their upcoming season. 6 artists were given a film from the season and Damn Fine Print printed the posters.
I was asked to create the poster for the big hair classic ‘Working Girl’ starring Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Joan Cusack and Sigorney Weaver.
I had a great time working on this project and its proof that I haven’t been neglecting the movie alphabet for no reason :-)
Gallery 1988 is the nation’s number one destination for pop-culture themed artwork and the premiere venue to witness the rise of emerging artists before they break.
Only one complete set of my Crazy 4 Gary Prints left!

'CRAZY 4 GARY'
My contribution to Gallery 1988’s ‘Crazy 4 Cult: Say Hi to the Bad Guy’ show opening October 18th in Los Angeles.
I am super thrilled to be a part of something I’ve been in awe of for years, for those of you who don’t know Crazy 4 Cult is like the Kentucky Derby of Pop Culture inspired art shows. It’s a big thing, in my books a Big Big Thing and I get to have a little space of it devoted to my work *squeals with joy!
Now without further over zealous jumping, my piece is called ‘CRAZY 4 GARY’ and is a set of four of Gary Oldman’s greatest screen villains. Zorg from Fifth Element, Stansfield from Léon, Drexel the Pimp from True Romance and Dracula from Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
You can buy each character as a pigment print individually (I am only doing runs of 5 of each character) or you can splash out and purchase the set of four at a discounted rate. They make great presents coming up to the holiday season :-)
I am sickened I can’t attend the opening of this show but delighted to be apart of it. If you are in Los Angeles in the next month you will not be disappointed if you go for a gander.
Coming up next week I’ll be returning again to my movie alphabet as well as revealing a poster which I will be exhibiting up in Dirty ole Dublin, keep your eyes pealed!
