If you’re as big a fan as we are of Owen Ashworth — the man formerly known as Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, now recording under the Advance Base moniker — you’ll know that his albums have often been adorned by his own rather whimsical drawings. Well, now he’s extended his interest in art into a whole book of illustrations. Titled Legends of the Silver Screen, it features idiosyncratic portraits of famous film directors, each accompanied by an imaginary signature. The book is out in the US at the end of March (pre-orders are open now), but publishers Belly Kids have been kind enough to share a selection of the images with us for this exclusive pre-release gallery.
