I recently had the pleasure of illustrating a poem called ‘Rocket’. Written by Joseph J Clark, it is one of 14 poems about drinking that together form his small batch poetry book ‘Drunk With A Pen’. Each poem, illustrated by a different local artist, is a story and explores the complex relationship with alcohol and drinking that many of us have. (The cover illustration shown below is by the talented Rosa Carbó-Mascarell)
An entertaining and thought provoking companion to any tipple, look out for your copy in various pubs dotted around the city. All proceeds from the book are donated to local charities including The Clock Tower Sanctuary which supports young, homeless people in Brighton and Hove. Cheers!
