As writers, cartoonists and animators Mick and John’s work has tickled almost every edge of the contemporary 360 degree media platform – from challenging late night television to cutting edge advertising, from international design magazines to greetings cards racks.
Their first TV series broadcast on Channel 4 in 2006, was a groundbreaking mixture of blunt-talking, animated characters with bizarre and surreal live action. Described as “badly drawn, utterly foul mouthed, mean spirited and misanthropic.. also very,very funny” by The Independent on Sunday, the series won almost universal critical plaudits and was nominated for a Rose D’Or award in 2009. Their second series was snapped up and broadcast in the US in 2009.
The pair have had two previous gallery exhibitions in Brighton and last summer presented a musical evening of their cartoons, complete with voice actors and live orchestra, to celebrate Brighton Arts Festival. A trimmed version of the show was taken to Latitude festival in summer 2010.
The highly collectible ‘Buy More S*** Or We’re All Fucked’ plastic bag, part of their ‘Improperganda’ inspirational range, was designed for an exhibition in the same festival. A major celebration of their artwork took place in London’s Maverick Gallery in June this year.
