Illustrations for 'Girls' by Michael Social    2008

Ink and Wash on Paper, folio of drawings, various sizes.

These are some illustrations I produced at the request of my friend 'Michael Social', who has written a bizarre, spiraling narative that is something like a cross between a pornographic autobiography and a lucid dream. He'd come over during evening production sessions and say 'I need you to draw me . . ' and I did. I deny all responsibility for this content, I was just doing what I was told.

Prior to this, I hadn't been drawing much for a long time. Apart from working diagrams, I don't work much on paper before I make sculptures, so this was a pleasant interlude, even if it did take up rather a lot of evenings. And this is only part one . . .

    

    

    

    

    

    

    

    

'Girls' is a 1200 word novella with 20 illustrations like the ones above. After a few pre-releases, including a limited sale at the MCA Zine Fair in May 2008, it was officially launched at the Workshop Showroom on May 30th, 2008. If you'd like a copy, contact me here and I'll see what we can do.

Michael also makes films. Check them out and contact him at his Youtube Channel or his Myspace
