Last week I took a trip to High Wycombe for the launch of illustrator CM Carter’s exhibition, ‘What A Time To Be Alive.’ Under the name, Breakfast Champion, Claire’s irreverent comic-inspired illustrations actually signalled the launch of Look Like Love, when she featured in our very first blog post back in 2011, and I’ve been following her progress as an emerging graphic artist and illustrator ever since.
The Snug Gallery, a space within the The Belle Vue pub in High Wycombe, was the setting for her first solo exhibition, showcasing a variety of prints from her growing collection of stand-out illustrations.
Alongside were a selection of her limited edition comics, t-shirts and a large statement print. The muted tones off-set the dark comic humour she creates in a world of quirky characters which exude rebellion.
‘What A Time To Be Alive.’ is on until mid-March at;
The Belle Vue Snug Gallery 45 Gordon Rd, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire HP13 6EQ
Can’t make it? We have a selection of prints, comics and t-shirts available from CM Carter, with new pieces coming soon!
