This is an idea for another DPS for a very short poem by John Hegley.
More on this when I start working on it...
Below is what I'm working on this week. For each poet I've picked I am making a couple of DPS's and then an extra bit (like the fold out monkey book). I was going to do another pull out book but then thought back to the first year when we made fold out posters and thought this format would fit what I want to do. SO this is sketchbook work for a fold out A3 poster based on the poem My Cat Plumduff by Charles Causley about a cat that prefers to sit up a tree. I have turned it into an excuse to draw lots of cats...by making it into a poster showing where Plumduff attemps to sleep before finding his perfect spot.
Also, my original plan was to actually make the book of poems but as time has gone on I have realised I may have to cut down on the number of pages/poems I wanted to illustrate because I think I've set myself far too much work for the time scale. So there are three poem/illustrations for Spike Milligan, but I've had to cut down to two each for the other two poets I picked. Along with 3 mini items to go with each poet. Instead of making a proper book (which was a bit ambitious) it might be close to a little booklet... Either way I can't put a booklet or book on an exhibition wall, just the double page spreads so I suppose it doesn't matter too much... (I'm waffling on trying to work this out now)
