2000AD Art Exhibition

2000AD and the International London Tattoo Convention are proud to present the finest art of 2000AD.
A unique opportunity to view 2000AD art and meet the finest Illustrators of this cult comic and purchase official 2000AD prints and art books.

2000 AD is Britain's cult sci-fi comic, and has been at the cutting edge of contemporary pop culture since 1977. It's a multi-award winning cocktail of explosive sci-fi and fantasy, infused with a mean streak of irony and wry black humour. Imaginative, hard-hitting stories and eye-popping art have made 2000 AD essential reading for its legion of fiercely loyal fans for over 30 years now.

2000 AD has been a proving ground for the finest young artists of the generation, and many of the biggest names in comics today honed their skills within its pages. It has become synonymous with the very finest in comics art, and has won the Best British Comic award at the UK Comic Art Awards, National Comics Awards and Eagle Awards too many times to list. Over a quarter of a century, 2000 AD has created hundreds of memorable comic book characters.

Breaking News: Orange Goblin

The 12th International London Tattoo Convention are proud to present London's own heavy metal band 'Orange Goblin' on Saturday night, 24th Sept 2016.

“‘Back from the Abyss’ is the sound of Orange Goblin firing on all cylinders!” roars frontman Ben Ward. “From the Sabbathian, weighty-groove of ‘Sabbath Hex’, the Motörhead-styled punk snarl of ‘The Devil’s Whip’, the epic, Maiden-esque gallop of ‘Mythical Knives’, through to the apocalyptic Doom of ‘The Shadow Over Innsmouth’; this is the best of all of our individual influences pulled together. We have created the definitive Orange Goblin album. Following the great, worldwide reception of ‘A Eulogy For The Damned’ and the subsequent 2 years of touring everywhere, we knew we had a lot to live up to. But we were prepared and entered the studio armed with an arsenal of killer riffs! They are all present on this album, continuing the Orange Goblin trend of never being afraid to move forward or trying something new. By doing so we have created a unique, heavy sound that lies somewhere between doom, stoner, classic metal, 70’s inspired heavy-rock, punk, blues and everything in between. We worked with Jamie Dodd again as he did such a great job on the last record and I think he has even gone one better this time around! Adding Jamie’s amazing production to the outstanding performances and songwriting of the band, we have made an album we are all very proud of. Our last album gave the band new life and sent us off into the unknown. This new album sees Orange Goblin stretching the limits once more… ‘Back From The Abyss’ and ready to rock all over again!!”
