Dennis the Menace, Minnie the Minx and The Bash Street Kids are the latest icons to get the Wayne Hemingway treatment.
The Morecambe-born designer and TV star helped bring to life ‘Beanotown’, a new London exhibition about Britain’s favourite comic.
Housed in space underneath the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank, Beanotown is a riotous installation charting the comic’s 75-year history with original strips and artwork, as well as providing opportunities to play ‘table Dennis’ or fire plastic missiles at a board that says “Imagine this is your teacher’s bum”.
The show is a collaboration between Hemingway’s design agency, the Southbank Centre and Beano publishers DC Thomson.
Hemingway said: “As designers we were like kids in a sweet shop – it was just ridiculous.
“We were wetting ourselves, it was that exciting.”
Wayne will be bringing a mini Vintage Festival to Morecambe’s Midland Hotel this September.
