City Beast – Observations of the Wild

City Beast – Observations of the Wild is a running commentary on life on Exeter’s Sidwell Street as seen through the eyes of the animals populating the City Centre. Using a mobile printing press comics were printed in the classic format – a 3-image strip sequence – executed as linocut. Passers-by  designed their own content for the empty speech bubbles, creating a variety of interpretations for each scene. Editioning happened on demand, images were printed in situ from the plates. For £2 each, and provision of a voice for our animals, people took a personal print with them. Produced in collaboration with Spacex Gallery, as part of Double Elephant’s Redefining Print programme.
