I’ve donated a number of my zines and EPs to this worthy cause:
“Weeks have passed yet the sheer scale of devastation wrought by the recent earthquake and tsunami on the east coast of Japan is still impossible to fully comprehend. Watching the scenes unfold on TV screens those of us with friends and family in the region were left with a horrible feeling of disconnection and a sense of uselessness.
To counter this however we can, we introduce EGAKU: a one day event to raise money for the Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Onsale will be zines, prints, ceramics, original drawings, books and much more, from some of the most renowned illustrators and designers of today – Rob Ryan, Nobrow, Okido, Anorak Magazine, Jean Jullien, Laura Carlin, Frinton Press, Peepshow, Hato Press, Lazy Oaf, Winged Chariot and many many more.
EGAKU means “draw” and “imagine ” in Japanese. We hope that we can support Japanese people EGAKU ( imagine) a peaceful future by EGAKU (drawing). 100% of all money made will be donated to the relief effort, for more information and a full list of contributors please visit our website: www.egaku.org.uk”
The event will be held in Jaguar Shoes, London, on Sunday 3rd April. If you’re around then, do pop in and buy some stuff, it’s all for a good cause.
