three drawings, all A3 size, are part of a collection of thirteen.
They are pen and ink on illustration board, and involve almost
as much scraping off the ink as putting it -on in the first place. They were done as a collaboration
with David Wheldon, the author and -poet, and published in a book which included
a sequence of 51 of his sonnets, called The Uncompliant
Stranger, with these drawings facing thirteen of them,
not as illustrations, as such, because I had done three of the
drawings before we even decided to do the book. It wasnt
even decided which poem to put each drawing alongside until almost
the last moment, but once all the sonnets were finished and ordered,and
the drawings completed, it -became
obvious where each one belonged.
