Dave Eggers

“Master of all things darkly comic … An excellent new book [Fully Coherent Plan] features 254 new illustrations, all drawn in his distinctive thick black pen on stark white paper, the naivety of the image offset by the scabrous, surreal or darkly comic text”
observer

“Concerned about the breakdown of society? Fear not: David Shrigley has a plan … Shrigley points politely towards the ridiculous and arbitrary nature of the societal strictures by which we all abide and from which he seems so blissfully free”
esquire

“One of the Turner Prize nominee’s greatest abilities as an artist is to create resoundingly funny work while also offering wry political commentary, in a fashion that is so thoroughly bizarre that it never fails to surprise … Shrigley’s world has something to offer everyone”

“Shrigley’s darkly funny illustrations reflect our surreal and disquieting times”
