Prestigious Benefactors

I am thrilled to mention that The British Library and Wellcome Library have both recently acquired the entire series of 'bio auto graphic' to date.

Ian Cooke and Debbie Cox were very welcoming at the BL.

At The Wellcome I enjoyed meetings with Loesja Vigour and Nicola Cook after an intro by Melanie Grant.

There is a link to a piece I wrote for the BL English and Drama blog here

WHO news 2 - RIP Deborah Watling: 1948 - 2017

Classic Companion and my favourite Doctor. A wonderful, wistful scene from 1967 here

WHO News 1

Absolutely brilliant news.
A fine actor.
The reason why this little show of 54 years and counting is very special.

Jodie Whittaker is The Doctor.

Nemesis of pernicious alien life-forms and small minds alike.

Mark My Words!

An enjoyable London Artists' Book Fair at Granary Square on Sunday.
I resurrected the 'bio auto graphic' bookmarks set in honour of the occasion. . .

Friday, 30 June 2017


Next weekend sees the revived/regenerated/resuscitated London Artists' Book Fair - allied to the mighty House of Illustration and offering many visual and textual riches at Granary Square in the similarly revived Kings Cross area.

I will be exhibiting my own work and the gorgeous creations of my partner in crime, Mette-Sofie D. Ambeck.

The event is for one day only and will be an excellent antidote to the dreary last-ditch power plays of Westminster, and the droning of Andy Murray from the television.
It'd be a tonic to see you!

Borough Market - A Week Later: Sunday 11th June

The bells of Southwark Cathedral ringing, the heartache of another parting, the tidal surges of change and shift and all that they might bring.
A full stop ends a sentence but how we shape the words before that always offers hope.

I had to ask a heavily armed policeman advice on the best way back to London Bridge, where young Muslim women were handing out red roses to add to the latest impromptu memorial to events.
