It really is a strange thing to do – combing a heavy American academic work on Stalin and the audio book of Stephen Fry’s latest autobiographical tome. I find myself reading the Stalin book with Stephen Fry’s voice with strangely disturbing results. I really hadn’t realised how much of my energy had gone into the previous fortnight’s work and so I was totally drained. This sounds like some effete nonsense but I comfort myself in the knowledge that I have done a real man’s job for over 30 years and see it as a reward for all the black days I suffered.
But for all this languishing on a chaise lounge waving scented handkerchiefs in a perfumed boudoir , this is how I imagine a true effete to spend his or her day, I have this project to work to. One piece of creative outpouring a day for a whole year. So this morning I created these drawings and combined them into a little image for your examination. Enjoy.
yester me yester you
