'The Secret Zine'

The following zine appeared first outside the offices of the AUCB Illustration department in sealed plastic sleeves on the morning of the illustration auction. No-one knew where they had come from or why, but Joel Lardner was quick to declare it the best thing he's seen this year.
The mysterious document depicts all the members of the illustration teaching staff, including visiting tutors such as Marcus Oakley, David Callow and Hayley Potter.

It went on to raise £60 at the silent auction, with the first run of copies selling out and a long list forming of people requesting extra copies to be printed. Various people's involvement has thought to have been identified, but the exact creator of many images still remains unknown. Some even say this fingerpainting of MO contains my fingerprints, but they'll never prove it.
