Stripping the Past

I’ve been preparing the various short stories I’ve written to publish as an e-book on Amazon.

I decided it needed some illustrations and rather than get someone to do them thought I would have a go myself. I haven’t done much drawing for forty years so getting out the Rotoring pens was fun as well as a challenge.

I’ve never been that good at freestyling so used some photographs as a basis and then adjusting the images to fit the stories. They were drawn freehand, however, rather than copying or tracing. I’m not sure they are that good, but I’m quite proud of them so have pasted some below.

Those familiar with the work of Georges Perec may recognise the inspiration of the first of these – appropriate as the inspiration of the story it comes from: The Cat Factory, was also inspired by Perec’s life and writing.
