POST NO.3 - Tick Tock Tick Tock




2004 - 2017 roughly equals 5000 days.

The next edition is merely number 30 - marry this numbers and this whole enterprise seems almost leisurely.

I must step up the pace.

POST NO.2: Synapse Spaghetti

EDITION 30 AHOY! POST NO.1





Today I'm marking the formal start of work on the upcoming 30th edition of 'bio auto graphic'.
What follows – in an extended sequence of posts before completion – will be a trail of experiments, fragments, hints and whispers of what's to come.

As I look ahead, I also look back; here is an experiment with digital colour on my piece
'Word World Pt.1'  (2006) - one of the key pieces in my development of the early series.

More to follow. . .

RIP Gary Powell






Fond memories of this lovely guy, who sat back to back with me in my final year my St Martins School of Art BA, long ago and far away.

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
