WHO WE ARE
Illustrator/Comic Artist Geoff Coupland (aka ZEEL) has a longstanding interest in folklore and has appeared at Cecil Sharp House with his magic lantern show based on the song "Babes in the Wood". He was also a part of the seminal MURRI folk disco instigated by artist Stephen Fowler in the early 2000’s, and has regularly alluded to and included Mythic and Folkloric elements into his comics, effigies and artwork thereafter.
Illustrator/Printmaker Aidan Saunders is often to be seen at arts and music festivals with his Print Wagon, freshly pressing lino prints. His fascination with Americana was the spark that formed the basis of the Golden Thread Project.
So far we have had the great pleasure of working with a fine mix of practicing artists of many ilks; from established artists like Hunt Emerson, Gary Northfield and Jonny Hannah, to rising stars studying at University of the Arts London.
