10 Questions With Drew Millward

Age: 26

Location: Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK

Years Doing Posters: Two and a half

Favorite Poster You’ve Done:
Ummm…. that’s tough. Probably either my Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy or Arab Strap one. It’s like choosing a favorite child. Would you make a mother choose her favorite child? hmm?

Favorite Poster that Someone Else Did:
I really don’t have just one, but two that i am constantly floored by, and have been since i first saw them are Pedini’s Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Acid Mother Temple (collab with Mex Choc.). Other than that Tuffy’s Robert Pollard cat poster is pretty close to perfection.
And a number of Jay’s posters…..
There is just too many!!!!

Music Currently In Rotation:
Do Make Say Think, The Gang Font Feat. Interloper, Tom Waits, Karate, Ennio Morricone, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Things in Herds, 7 Hertz, Mission of Burma, Converge, BARR, Shellac, Thee More Shallows….. at the risk of sending folk to sleep, i’ll stop the list.

Last Print, Poster, or Toy Bought:
At some point last year, possibly after i had started printing myself, i realised that storage was really begining to become a bit of an issue, so my toy and print collecting really was put on hold. I think the last piece that i got could well have been Rica’s Snuffed by the Yakuza poster, which is frankly mind boggling.
I have, on several occasions, tried to get my hands on some Horkey stuff, but it just sells too damn quickly, and i can’t afford the prices they get flipped at…..

Favorite Website: Duh! Gigposters.com

Upcoming Stuff:
Uh, i’m not sure. I have some posters and prints to work on, and it’s looking like i will be having my first show in Dusseldorf in December, so lots of build up to that. Maybe some more album covers….. shirts….. that sort of thing.
I’m available for work.
I really don’t know. I just take each day as it comes.

Words of Wisdom:
Don’t do drugs!
