Farewell To The Retro Draughtsman

“All good things must come to an end” is a powerful and commonly used phrase in life.

In this case it is tinged with sadness. Announced a few weeks ago, The Retro Draughtsman has decided to close his store. We caught up with him at MCM Comic Con in Birmingham and while stepping down, he’ll still be continuing his alternative venture with Cult Locations INK.

“It come’s to the point where these drawings take so long to create. They are a real labour of love and I really do enjoy them, but I have another venture that has been doing well, so it’s time to pursue that now. All my current stock is on sale at reduced prices, there are loads of people here today who have grabbed themselves a bargain or 2. Cult Locations INK. is going to be my main concentration in the coming months, but never say never to the return of The Retro Draughtsman!”

While he sold most of his stock at the Birmingham show, however he does still have a very limited amount of items available on The Retro Draughtsman website.

I am the proud owner of a few of Gav’s creations and on behalf of the team here at Jedi News, we wish him all the best for his new project and look forward to seeing him at conventions around the UK in the future.

You can also check out his new work via his website.
