The lovely Hannah Meiklejohn ( created this amazing review of The Poet and the Flea + interview of me for Lemonade: Freshly Squeezed Art & Culture Magazine:

In the interview, I answer a number of very intriguing questions about The Flea and my interest in William Blake. Hannah really came up with some great questions and it was a pleasure answering them!

Also, the article features a nice array of images from my portfolio in a pleasing arrangement.

So please, please, please check it out!

    I loved the bit: That’s when everything clicked in my head – that Dante, Blake, and Ginsberg are all interconnected. Is not this what they call epiphany? Your book will really do well with so much going for it. Why would you even want a publisher and pay commissions when you have so many followers already?

    I was relieved to hear that you reasonably enjoyed my posts. You appear to be a nice and generous person, I must mind not to abuse it. So, I really want to spare you from my graphic novels business. I’ve just befriended some authors on Facebook and some of them can be so persistent. Ignore my future posts advertising my books, please because I prefer you to stay as my blog tutor. Speaking of which, have you ever tried one of those web traffic service? Have you heard if it worked?

      Thanks! Yes, it was an epiphany, wasn’t it?

      I understand where you’re coming from as far as publishers go, but there are a number of reasons I’d like The Flea to be picked up by a publisher.

      No problem, I can understand how other authors/illustrators online can sometimes get annoying or frustrating. I’m glad you consider me as your blog tutor. 🙂 No, I’ve never tried a web traffic service. I just like exploring the tags on WordPress to find other artists I admire and sometimes they follow me back!
