Moleskine Pages- Killing The Muse

Part II of 'The Murder Of The Muse Series', inspired by the eponymous poem by Vivienne Strauss.
' They looked forward to their feast with a greedy hot- blooded anticipation. They planned the menu and selected their prey with great are and benevolence. The chosen cuts were honoured offerings.

Molskine Pages- Stoning The Muse

This is for my friend the artist Vivvienne Strauss. The picture is part of a series inspired by Vivienne's poem 'Murder Of The Muse'.
'She never made a secret of the fact that she had a vested interest in hanging around. She had ideas, thoughts and flights of fancy that needed expression. She wanted a conduit. I wanted her to shut the fuck up.'

Moleskine Pages- Waiting For Ghosts

We will wake up fresh and rested, happy and hopeful. we are waiting to be haunted...waiting for ghosts.
