On the 28th of July I had the great privilege of meeting up with the wonderful Portsmouth Writer's Hub for a workshop based around Creative Writing responses to Art with Jacqui Pack & James Bicheno. The subjects for the evening's workshop were sixteen of my paintings. The writers hub is a terrifically talented group and the results of the evening's work were so creative and exciting that we are going to produce a small illustrated book containing many of the stories and the paintings that inspired them. The tales cover an amazing variety of situations from wild and fantastic comedy to gothic noir via quietly domestic to outright surrealism, sometimes all in one story!
The book is just in the process of being designed, edited and assembled before going to print and will be a delicious mixture of strange pictures and and fantastically imaginative writing. We are not sure about pricing at present but it will not be an expensive luxury, I'll post more when we are in a position to take take orders
