I am delighted to have art work included in this collection of poetry edited by Mari Fitzpatrick, Oonah Joslin, and Bill West which was published on November 20th, 2021.
They were made to accompany the poems Solo Shot and Star Roots by Tom Sheehan which I was able to read in full to guide the work. The poems are remarkable and it was a privilege to make visual interpretations of them, and as separate pieces of work, they also have a life of their own.
Star Roots became The Speed of Things
Solo Shot became Bang Bang
I haven’t read the rest of this collection yet, but I will. It’s a dipper and also a sit-down-and-finish issue. Maybe do the the sit-down first, then keep it to hand for the dips.
A Christmas Canzonette, published by long-running journal of fine poetry, The Linnet’s Wings, is available now from Amazon. ISBN 978-1916462236.
