From the Idol Scribbler…
Hello Idollers everywhere!
So much is happening behind the scenes at Idol Scribblings, that it is high time to share a post to tell you all about it.
On 30th November Idol Scribblings – The Book will be officially launched. A collection of 52 deities, ancient and modern, for all occasions. You can pre-order your copy NOW! (More on that below).
I am frantically working on turning the Idol Scribblings pantheon into a beautiful tome for you all to enjoy. I’m tidying everything up, putting it in order and adding some finishing touches like the pictures you see here. My wonderful partner in crime Kris is lending me his typesetting and graphic design skills to help make it look perfect. He really is much better at that stuff than I am. There is so much I have to think about that I never realised until just now. I am having nightmares where I am chased by bar-codes, copyright notices, ISBNs and RRPs.
As if that wasn’t going to keep me busy enough, from 30th November until 14th December 2019 there will be an exhibition of Idol Scribblings artwork to accompany the book launch. This will be at the Coterie Gallery in Riverside Precinct, Rotherham. Come and see your favourite gods and goddesses up close, accompanied by humorous installations. I am putting a lot of thought into the staging to create a suitably mythical experience for visitors. You will get to find out why I keep seeing adverts for plastic bananas on Facebook lately.
You will be able to purchase the book, and order high quality framed and unframed art prints from the gallery in various sizes. There will be a launch event at the gallery on Saturday 30th November from 10am until 12 noon with mince pies and drinks, a chance to get your book signed and other strange rites.
Anthony Carroll, who runs The Coterie Gallery has been immensely kind in giving me gallery space for this fortnight. The Coterie Gallery is a brilliant community arts oriented gallery which takes a chance on new artists like me. The gallery is always free to enter. It’s well worth keeping an eye on their Facebook page, as they have some fantastic exhibitions on from immensely talented people you may not have heard of before, as well as Anthony’s own beautiful work.
