err, very little has happened since my last update two weeks ago - i’ve yet to see a redesign of the cover - will the book get done in time? - all that exists at the moment is a page order for the paintings - and my series of five “arisu k word” paintings have had to be renamed to “alice k word” - apparently, i’m told, because japanese cannot understand their own katakana spellings when written romanised! - ???

long gone john pitched a feature about the book to hi-fructose magazine - but, as i kinda expected, they turned it down - they say they already have a review of camille rose garcia’s illustrated alice book in the coming issue so it “may not be right to have another alice piece” for the magazine - sounds a bit of a crappy excuse - i’d have thought it would have been an ideal editorial opportunity to juxtapoz (!) us together, especially as our approaches are so radically polarised - but whatever - it would have been nice if it happened but i’m not really overly bothered tbh
