Well some pages have started to come in for my latest assemblage artists book Altered State. About five of the thirty-five artists have now got their pages to me and it is already starting to look the goods. This is still early days as I am inviting and negotiating with each artist individually to show respect and to convey a deeper understanding of the project. I expect this will take at least the rest of they year to get blood from a stone…err 🙂

…to get an edition of 50 hand altered photocopied pages from each artist.

But when it does all come together it should be a beautiful object challenging the notions of zines and artists books, as well as that of art in the age of mechanical reporoduction. This project is not about commerse but rather the exchange of art and ideas with each of the artists gaining a book assembled with each other participating artists works in it.

I have chosen to include about 35 artists to allow the placement of a few in archives and public collections.

Enjoy!

Now for something very different…

For those who were paying attention last year I took part in the Game of Kings, Chess Illustration project set up by Simon Sherry. Well a year has rolled around and now all the pieces are complete and the battle is about to begin. The task this time round was to take the characters designed by one of the other eight illustrators and re-interpret them in your own way based on the Story line by Danny Nolan.

A very tough challenge based on the standard of work by the other artists involved!

Below is a teaser for my scene of the rook wiping out the bishop…

just one of the many illustrated moves written into the story.

So if Chess is your thing, or if your keen to read the writing of Danny and see what some of the new recruits are going to do…especially new works by the likes of artists Nick Ford and Matt Dunn to name a few awesome additions.
