Harold Hickenbottom and the Story of how he became friends with the Monsters under his Bed: Justin Lee
Argyle Fine Art - 7pm

So the show is about Harold Hickenbottom. This is a character I created back in animation school and have been living with for about 8 years. I'm constantly trying to work out the finer bits of his story, the overall design of him as a character and the world he lives in. This art show was about exploring the situations he could/would find himself in as he interacts with the monsters that dwell under his bed.....
