I am thrilled to have been able to contribute drawings to Misha Bower’s wonderful book, “Music for Uninvited Guests.” Each drawing was in response to the “feel” of a particular story rather than the actual events. A sort of alternate dimension to the story. The fox above was one of my favourites of the series which also produced one orphan not used for the book. Misha had mentioned an angel with water wings as a possible illustration (I believe for “The Leading Man”). An orphaned and overly cautious angel.
The stories are the kind of stories I like. Stories that make you feel like messing up your whole life is really just a way to think about stuff. That laughing is just a way of crying without looking foolish. The stories aren’t sentimental, but they awake a sentimental feeling in me that makes me want to hold on to those I love because we are all just one fuck up from being alone.
