London's Illustration Cupboard gallery hosts an exciting exhibition this Autumn, celebrating 40 years of Aardman Animations! Running from 21st September till 15th October, the exhibition brings together a fantastic array of original artwork from the Aardman archives.
The gallery will be displaying concept art and early sketches from favourite Aardman characters, delving into work by Nick Park, Peter Lord and other Aardman artists and animators. You'll also find a specially produced Morph sculpture on show, as well as copies of the recently published The Art of Aardman Book. Super fans will even be able to purchase selected artwork from the exhibition.
To launch the exhibition and book publication, the gallery is holding a book signing event with Aardman co-founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton on 28th September from 3-5pm. The exhibition is open to the public until mid October - find out full info here.
If you won't be able to make the book signing but would like to purchase a copy of The Art of Aardman, head over to the new look Aardstore - you'll find the book in the special 40th Anniversary selection, including exclusive bundles featuring a limited edition signed Morph print or free Morph modelling clay.
