Myself and Nick had the pleasure of meeting Joe Ledbetter at the opening leg of his Amalgamation tour in London showing at the London Miles Gallery for the next three weeks. The show marked Joe's first ever UK solo show and included a nice (and affordable!!) mix of original paintings, sketches, prints, tees and of course the release of the European variant of his new Terror and Magnus toy. Fans certainly lapped that up with all pieces assigned to the UK show selling out within just a few hours.
Aside from the show itself and catching up with old friends, Joe was a pleasure to chat too - we talked everything from his art and toys, to cats and how amazing Tim Biskup is! We also got a sneak peek of some upcoming toys that will have fans reaching for their wallets in 2010. Watch this space for more JLed news and an upcoming issue of the magazine for the interview with Joe. Big thanks to all the London Miles crew for arranging the interview and putting on a great show! If you're in the area go check it out and maybe buy yourself a piece of amazing artwork.
