aspex is very excited to launch its new exhibition space aspex Guildhall with a selection of new and recent works by illustrator Jonny Hannah.

Jonny Hannah grew up in Dunfermline & studied at the Cowdenbeath College of Knowledge, Liverpool Art School & then the Royal College of Art. For the last sixteen years he has been a freelance illustrator, & is represented by the Heart Agency in London & New York. His many clients include The Sunday Telegraph, The New York Times & The St. Kilda Courier.

He happily lives in Southampton, with Sharon and their two bairns and is the course leader for BA Illustration at Southampton Solent School of Art & Design. His studio has now returned to his back garden, in the loveliest of sheds, now HQ to the ‘Cakes & Ale Press’, a cottage industry publishing books, prints, posters, tea towels and  badges.

This exhibition is part of a continuing journey, down, down, down into the belly of obscure pop culture. Blues, Jazz, Western Swing, Folk & Hokum & Chanson. Not to mention poetry & films. All will be told in full in his forthcoming monograph, ‘Greetings from Darktown’, published later this year by Merrell Books.
