Nasty Safari and Capture Manchester

I got an exciting e-mail in my inbox yesterday. It's been in the works for a while, but the amazing new writing e-zine, Nasty Safari, is here. It's got fiction, poetry, drama and a frankly hilarious blog...and in fact that's just for starters, there's so much stuff on there that you just have to check it out. The highlight for me is Claire Urwin as I'm unashamedly in love with her work, she's a poet and a playwright, and she does both so well that I'm very glad she rarely writes fiction or I'd have to quit.

This new Capture Manchester exhibition at the Cube gallery on Portland St is good for a bit of inspiration - gets you thinking about new ways to see the city you live in.


  1. I nearly entered that Capture Manchester competition but I couldn't get out of this really stale and lame way of thinking about it. "I should TOTALLY do a SKYLINE with all the BUILDINGS" so I didn't bother. I'm going to go and look though, maybe it will make me not want to be an illustrator and I can just Let Go of that idea.

  2. I should warn you that the illustrated images are my least favourite, I don't think they work as well as the photographs, but I'll be interested to know what you think about that as an illustrator.
