Gerhard's Photos: Page 45

GERHARD:
Jeff Tundis had posted a bunch of my old photos on his Art of Gerhard website quite a while ago. I've just started going through my old photos again and here are a few that aren't on his website. 

Aardvarks Over UK Tour '93:
A trip to do a signing at the amazing Page 45 in Nottingham co-founded by Stephen Holland and Mark Simpson, "a comic shop whose goal has always been simple: to bring the widest range of quality comics and graphic novels available into contact with as many new people as possible, and to do so with a warmth, honesty and informed eloquence in a relaxed, welcoming and professional environment".
L to R: Me, Serious Dave Sim, Sombre Stephen Holland (seated) and Solemn Mark Simpson.
I have no idea why I’m the only one grinning like an idiot.
Back-cover Cerebus #177 (December 1993)
Gerhard provided background art to Dave Sim's cast of Cerebus characters between issue #65 (August 1984) and #300 (March 2004) - contributing to over 4,700 pages of comic art, as well as numerous Cerebus covers and illustrations. Keep up to date on all of Gerhard's current projects at his blog and website, including details of his new book, The Wish.
