¡Ah!... ¡Malditos!

Last Friday and Saturday in Nau Bostik, took place the 4th edition of Gutter Fest, one of the best festivals in the Mediterranean. The new space, divided in 3 industrial units, accommodate at 130 creators of the most bizarre, rare and unclassified stuff.

On Bad Weather press desk, I presented the last two projects: a four-hand collage book with Gabri Guerrero called ¡Ah!... ¡Malditos! (¡Ah!... ¡Damned!) and a small photo-book with lots of similarities with the Manhattan one I published years ago called Japan, with... (of course) pictures from Tokyo to Fukuoka. Both of them, your will be able to find them at the fair Parada Zero this Saturday from 12 o'clock to 23:00h, at the Sant Antoni Maria Claret palace.

Off Libris 2016

Yep! This Saturday I'm going to be in Barcelona, in front of Arts Santa Mònica cultural center. While inside the center takes place the 6th edition of Arts Libris, on the other side of the street (in La Rambla) will take place the Off Libris. I'm going to be there with the people of Bad Weather Press, Lindero Libros and Lentejas Press (and maybe other people join during the day.

Here a poster I made for the occasion. Of course, you can check where it comes from here. :)

Diari & Altres tafaners: Sold out

Good news from Bad Weather Press! Last weekend, at the GRAF comic and selfpublishing fair (see pictures here), two of my collage publications were sold out. But, both publications:"Altres tafaners" and "Diari" are still available (in a few copies) at Fatbottom Bookstore & Gallery. Quick!

I'm looking for the possibility to publish the third publication of the "busybodies trilogy" for Sant Jordi. And also the possiblity of having a small place on the street to sell them. We will see. If you want something nice, made with love, have a look at "El confort dels estranys", a 21 cm x 30 cm collage book published, again, by Bad Weather Press.

The Weird Show: Barcelona (workshop)

After the exhibition of “Certain kinds of trash” from Max-O-Matic, Me & the  Curiosity strikes again with the Barcelona edition of the International weird collage show. The exhibition is located on the Arts & Cultural Center Espronceda (number 326 of Espronceda street) and will remain open to the public untill the 13th of March.

This saturday 27th of February, we made a jam collage with some of the exhibition artists. It was a highly creative activity of four hours, here my cut & paste pieces:

At Minimum & Onion Rings

As some of you know or may have noticed, Bad Weather Press, the self-publishing house I co-founded some years ago with Robert Roura closes doors this 2016. A nice project-experience that helped me to join, know and meet people around the world. Yes, all of you  who once buyed a publication or only came to the table and criticised (positively or negatively), helped us to keep going on.

The latest publication of the press is "At minium”, a photograph project by Marc Llach, from Girona that I found at the Torroella de Montgrí photobook fair. (I totally recommend the publication we did at BWP). For my part, the latest publication was "Onion Rings". An illustrated collage in red and pink with a mix of traits that can be, sometimes, annoying. After all, food, women and ugliness is what predominates all the pages.

And the onlookers trilogy? I don’t know. The last publication called Tresors de la catedral (Treasures from the cathedral) has already the layouts and I will make some copies. I will take them to all the fairs we do with Bad Weather throughout this year and then we'll see. (Surely Fatbottom Books will have some copies so you will be able to buy it at the same time you find other graphic pieces from catalan artists).
