About the tutor:
George Gibson is an artist, educator, and Manchester School of Art Technician, specialising in book arts, zinemaking, and risograph printing.
Predominantly working collaboratively, George co-ran publishing based collective Shy Bairns from 2016 - 2023, attended alternative education program School of the Damned from 2020 - 2022, and is a current member of ABC [Artists Books Cooperative], an international group of artists who experiment with the form of the book. George has worked with writers, artists and researchers to publish works exploring cryptozoology, queer retellings of Godzilla, the brief history of ‘Goblin Mode’, and an evaluation of the psychological impact of the hit 00s science fiction drama LOST. These works have been exhibited, and are held in collections, internationally.
