“The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T. S. Eliot – Page 10

At long last, here it is, the beginning of the continuation of my comics adaptation of “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T. S. Eliot. I spent a lot of time, Prufrock-like, fussing over the smallest details of these drawings, so please do take the time to click on the image to see an enlarged version.

Page 11 to be pinned –wriggling on the wall– next Monday!

Interview with the California Journal of Poetics

I gave an interview to Lisa Grove for the California Journal of Poetics, which has just launched its first issue in its new online format. You can read the interview here:

This issue features many celebrated contemporary poets, as well as a lot of great artwork, including the poetry comics of Bianca Stone. My comics adaptations of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s “Witch-Wife” and Salvatore Quasimodo’s “And Suddenly It’s Evening” also appear.
