Fast growing Iron Gut Publishing continues to add to its licensed roster, signing an agreement to create a fine art programme for the Edward Monkton brand.
The firm signed a similar deal with Allsorts for Betty Boop back in April.
"We're delighted that Iron Gut Publishing is joining our already extensive licensing programme for Edward Monkton, and we are looking forward to working with them in developing a global fine art programme for the brand," said Alicia Davenport from DRi Licensing.
"Edward Monkton's graphics and his thoughtful, lyrical writing combine wry humour with simple truth. His unusual and often left field observations of everyday life have a serious message and resonate profoundly with people from all walks of life.
"Iron Gut Publishing will capture these thoughts in a distinctive collection of prints which showcase the inimitable musings and iconic graphic style of Edward Monkton."
Anthony Marks, MD of Iron Gut, added: "We are extremely pleased with this agreement. We have a US-based sales team already in place and the brand is being well received by art galleries worldwide."
