Things that are the same colour as Pi

Bracken in autumn, tangled in hedges.

Someone once said that my blog ( which I began years ago in 2005) reminded them of The Pillowbook of Sei Shonagon. I was curious. I bought a copy and it led me on a wonderful journey across the world and back in time. And then I was flattered.

Meanwhile, I haven’t been able to post the work I am doing as I usually would. There are secrets in The Lost Words. The book needs to be experienced as a whole. So my work is hidden. Yesterday I parcelled up the latest offering and sent to Hamish Hamilton. I am almost half way through now. Tomorrow I need to settle in to more painting. It’s a big book. The work for it fills my mind in ways no other book I have worked on does.


While I have been walking the dogs and working on this James Mayhew has been illustrating Mrs Noah’s Pockets. It’s wonderful for me seeing how this work has progressed.




So, for a while I will keep on working. There will be a press release about The Lost Words soon. When the work is finished I am going to take a rest from books for a while, and draw and paint and walk and read and write and maybe play. And next year I have work in exhibitions and will visit bookshops a bit.

Don’t forget about the bookmarks for The Flying Seagull Project. You can always frame it if you don’t want to use it as a bookmark. They are rather lovely. You can buy them here.
