"This is my tribute to Commander Makara from Star Fleet / X Bomber. I’ve started working on a series of homages to various female characters, which I feel have inspired my Stabby Women in some way or another. Commander Makara is definitely one of them and was actually the first one that sprung to mind. I plan to continue the series on the new year.
I knew I wanted to make a one color print and similar to the Sphinx edition from the Summer, I chose to invert the character to make use of the negative space, which I think helps to create maximum impact. It also gives the appearance of a traditional brass rubbing, which I also like." - Kid Acne

ABOUT Kid Acne:
Kid Acne is something of a modern day renaissance man. Artist, illustrator, print-maker and sometimes, MC. His formative years were spent painting graffiti, making fanzines and releasing DIY punk/hip-hop records from his bedroom in an East Midlands backwater. In the late 90’s his work was first published in the now seminal Scrawl tome, which documented the conversion of counter culture illustration, skateboard graphics and left-field graffiti as a kind of precursor to what is now widely recognised as a 'Street Art' aesthetic.
While studying Fine Art in Sheffield, his work gained the attention of WARP Records executives who commissioned him to illustrate album sleeves for Plaid back in 1999. At the turn of the millennium, his work began to appear as the backdrop for major club nights and in style magazines throughout the UK. His illustrations have now adorned products for leading brands, such as Levis, Prada and Kenzo whilst his inimitable art can be seen throughout the globe, in wheat-pastes, murals and gallery shows from Beijing to Azerbaijan.
He is currently working on a series of short animations for Channel 4, for which he also provides the voice of the lead character, Zebra Face along with a cast of British talent, such as Roots Manuva and Jarvis Cocker.
...and he still has acne.
