Ctrl.Alt.Shift Exhibition Opening

Here's me chilling with Lightspeed. This is the only picture I have to prove I was even at the opening and I'm barely on it, but who cares when I'm in a book and on a wall right? Lightspeed was a very cool dude. He knows his Star Wars and apparently he used to play Magic the Gathering so I can't help but respect the man.
Also on the wall is a comic by Julia Scheele, a very talented maker of interesting comics that I had the pleasure of (briefly) meeting there. She has a nice blog and is a contributor to Solipsistic Pop, a comic anthology I'm looking forward to getting my hands on.

Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption is still very much on sale and you can get all 96 pages for a very, very reasonable price of £4.99! All profits go to Ctrl.Alt.Shift. For a taster of what they're all about I'll cite the "about" text from their site:

"Stand up and represent - that's what Ctrl.Alt.Shift is all about. Whether you're into music, fashion, politics or direct action, photography, design, dance, art or journalism, there's a place for you within our movement to fight social and global injustice.

Since Ctrl.Alt.Shift was born in June 2008, we've stormed embassies of countries who've imposed travel restrictions on people living with HIV, highlighted the plight of the 50 million women missing in India and created awareness around countless development issues. Breaking with convention to bring about change, we work with everyone from Plane Stupid and VICE to Sadler's Wells, Tinchy Stryder, Metronomy, Shynola, Alexa Chung and David Shrigley.

It's your world, take control."
