Description

Drawings, personal photographs, documents, and ephemera by underground cartoonist, artist, writer, musician, and amateur magician Savage Pencil.

Pulled together from his massive archive of drawings, personal photographs, documents, and ephemera, alongside a new, extensive interview conducted by author and legendary esoteric bibliographer Timothy D'Arch Smith, Rated SavX is an access-all-areas trawl through the life and work of the artist known as Savage Pencil.

Underground cartoonist, artist, writer, musician, and amateur magician Savage Pencil has been conjuring up images and making a noise since 1977. Beginning with his "Rock 'N' Roll Zoo" strip for 1970s music paper Sounds to his drawing 'Trip or Squeek" for The Wire magazine, his instantly recognizable, delirious, and demented images have come to define their own form of acerbic graphic critique and satire. Savage Pencil has also designed album covers, T-shirts, posters and other merchandise for bands including Sonic Youth, Big Black, The Fall, Sunn O))), Coil, and Earth, and a host of obscure punk rockers, metal gurus, and noise addicts. As a result, Savage Pencil's drawings have become intrinsically linked with the sonic ideas that were being transmitted on such records as Sonic Youth's Death Valley '69 and Big Black's Headache.
