Le Gun lecture

This was another lecture that  found quite interesting as it questioned my ideas of how an artist collaborative should work. I liked their laidback approach to work an how they just make the work they enjoy and therefore only takeonjobs they actually want to do, even if this isn't nessecarily financially viable. Starting as several artists/illustrators working together on their magazine 'Le Gun', they have branched out into gallery works, exhibitions with entire rooms made of cardboard, and stained glass windows. As a group they also set up a shop, which was used as the set for a Babyshambles music video. I like this mis-matched and random approach to work as much as I like their hand-drawn black and white style.
