Zippo Kunst by Brodnax Moore

In 1977 'Zippo' became a regular strip in the Yorkshire Arts Association monthly guide and the North West Arts Artful Reporter published 'Search me? Pablo'. New Arts No 1 in Hebden Bridge carried 'To The Stars' in 1978. Then another regular strip called 'Winx' appeared monthly in the national Artists Newsletter for two years from 1982.

Moore produced general graphic design work for the theatre companies Welfare State and IOU (1975-80), for the Halifax Health Education Centre (1983-85), the Hebden Bridge New Arts Association and Nursery Action Group. In 1986 he developed a four-page strip 'Smarty's Circus' for Escape but it wasn't used. Since then Moore has concentrated on short films, photography and painting.
