He has illustrated comics, album covers, rock and film posters, as well as advertising and magazine illustrations. Evans is the founder of the TAZ collaboration, which is responsible for hundreds of gig posters, album covers, and rock ephemera. TAZ has turned out numerous posters for bands like the Foo Fighters, U2, Oasis, Porno For Pyros, Green Day, Pearl Jam, The Beastie Boys, Ramones, Rage Against The Machine, Wu Tang Clan, Metallica, and Nine Inch Nails. TAZ also did a number of high profile album jackets for The Beastie Boys, Beck, Aerosmith, House of Pain, and Face To Face. TAZ has been exhibited and disseminated worldwide.

Dennis Morris is a British-based artist who has used the camera to produce an in-depth body of work on extraordinary individuals.

Closely associated with music, Morris has created some of the most iconic and memorable images of Bob Marley and the Sex Pistols, as well as the Marianne Faithfull Broken English album cover. He has also captured the essence of the Sikh community of Southall, UK; the collection was subsequently bought by English Heritage. Morris also created the iconic Public Image Ltd logo and the band’s first two album sleeves, including the Metal Box.

Jim and Dennis will have a one-on-one discussing their careers and experiences working with musicians such as the Sex Pistols, Bob Marley, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and many more.
