The rollercoaster of ‘Thun’ continues at a relentless pace, and the hivemind is feeling good! We had a great time last Sunday helping Ruby Hinton run her Draw Your Feelings workshop – we got to draw and hang out with some sweet sweet beings. The workshop was run off the back of the Equinox spring time exhibition here in Bristol where we exhibited some work – keep your eyelids ajar for new posters in the Thunderchair shop!
On top of this our friend and general good creature Max K of Shake has interviewed us for the latest issue of his magazine. Its the best one yet and inside you will find out what truly keeps our twisted hearts ticking. Buy your copy now HERE …
As for upcoming happenings we’ll be trading at Birmingham Comic Con next weekend (28th/29th)! – we expect to be batting away the hordes of ThunderFans from the Midlands decked out in CJ and Slug Harris cosplay. New stock will be available for purchase, not least the long awaited release of Shovelhawks Volume 1, all 3 chapters (including the never seen before Chapter 3) combined in our longest and most exhilarating story yet!
Follow the links below for more info on Birmingham Comic Con as well as keeping up to date with future activity with Ruby’s Bristol workshops!
Shake at Rough Trade Bristol was a hoot hoot kachoot! Thanks to everyone who came, and everyone who visited our table and bought a tasty chunk of Thundy goodness. A gigantic, skrontacula thanks to those legendary few who scored a copy of the brand spanking new comic, CJ & Slug Harris!
Speaking of which, CJ & Slug Harris Issue 1 will be available on the Thunderchair Webshop this Sunday Feb 18th! PLUS a barrage of newness in the form of sludgilicious badges and stickers to make you pee your knickers! Hoot hoot kachoot! And remember if you’re hot to trot or cool-cat-not, chill at the Thundyspot!
To wrap this sucker up quick styler our new luxury collaborative item, created with our Thunderfriend, Crypto Spectre, will be hitting the webshop shelves, post-haste!
Another rotation cycle has been completed. The time they call “2018” came into effect, as is tradition. After experiencing this, so called 2018, for several sleeps and wakes now, Thunderchair can confirm, with haste and gumption, that this is in fact, a “New Year”. Try not to panic, we’ve done enough of that for you already. With this news upon us, it brings in tandem a string of exciting, fancy and some would say, gorgonzola, based treats for you sensory receptors. Gather supplies, mainly toilet roll, and read on.
Issue 1 of CJ & SLUG HARRIS has fully formed and taken its rightful place as priority one. Soon, if our modern systems of delivery stay true to the ancient texts, these wondrous comics shall be purchasable over on our shop! As well as at the upcoming event, SHAKE! On Sunday 11th February. If you assess your inner selves, you’ll soon find that the ONLY option is to come on that very date. You shall be rewarded with endless art goodness, all the visual stimulation you can handle, and probably many free stickers.
Along with the release of CJ & SLUG HARRIS Issue 1 and the event on February 11th, SHAKE! We have merged our conscience with a dear friend who is named, Gordon Emmanuel. With our combined essence, Gordon has produce a VERY LIMITED range of resin cast Slug Harris Figures! Neither action, nor words can express our respect for Gordon’s mighty talents and we are beyond euphoric to join forces and bring you these limited edition pieces of beauty. Be the first to observe and obtain one at SHAKE! On February 11th.
