Things that are happening

So, many things have been happening lately.

Well, many things are always happening but I am largely talking about interesting things that are happening that I have been involved with in some capacity, because I am a hopeless attention-seeker. Now we've got that confession out of the way I will make a list of these things:

1. An absolutely lovely lady named Chrissy Williams has a book of poetry out today called 'The Jam Trap' that features artwork from comic book artists alongside words that she has put together. You can grab a copy from many places, including the mighty Amazon. My small contribution to this rather wonderful collection of poetry and illustration is just below. I'm a secret poetry nut, so being asked to pick a poem and come up with a drawn response was probably one of the nicest things I've been asked to do in a long time. Thanks, Chrissy!

2. Perhaps unwisely, I tried my hand at music journalism the other day. You can read my first attempt at this particular discipline over at Clickmusic. Have decided this journalism malarkey is potentially a lot of fun, so I think I will be scribbling down more of my opinions on Cultural Phenomena and Musical Ting in the not too distant future. 

3. Finally, The Peckham Invalids is getting featured on the BBC! Howard, Julia and I were interviewed by their flagship Deaf culture program 'See Hear' a couple of weeks ago. The results of that chat will be on air on BBC2, on Wednesday 7th January 2012 at 1pm (so that's tomorrow). You can see a little preview of Howard chatting about the project over on their website.
