Illarterate @ PLAY Blackpool 2016 **STOP PRESS**

Well, it’s the end of a long and proud unbeaten run! Due to previous commitments, this year’s will be the first iteration of PLAY Blackpool that I (Yackingham) will be unable to attend personally.

But worry not, for the Illarterate team consists of more than one person(!), and hence will be represented at the event. Furthermore, you can expect the usual quality PLAY coverage right here and at As ever, video interviews and panels will be hosted at the Retro Unlim YouTube channel.

…Oh, would you like a taste? Here’s some of Illarterate’s coverage from last year’s PLAY Blackpool:

Coming this year: Jim Bagley! Jon Hare! Plus much more to get very excited about.


I know nothing about art; as a rule, 'modern' graphic design does not appeal to me. I like to write in the first person because I do not want to be someone else.

Influences: public toilet cubicle drawings/slogans; WordArt posters in Market Street shop windows; Mega-Zine; bootleg vinyl artwork; Janne Suni; Pink Floyd; whoever is responsible for the Max Headroom hijacking incident; Collie, the Inept Reviewer.
