It seems Image Duplicator has got people talking … The private view, attended by a number of artists including co-curators Rian Hughes & Jason Atomic, Dave Gibbons, Garry Leach, Steve Cook, DJ Food, Robin Barnard and friends, has been covered extensively here, here and here – and people can’t get enough of the ongoing discussion about Lichtenstein and his work.
In the spirit of that, Orbital Comics are hosting a very special panel discussion this Thursday May 23, to explore Lichtenstein’s work and the original comics he drew inspiration from.
