'The Lady on the Grey'

Hello again!

Presenting once more my latest lino print for Damnable Tales. This time it’s John Collier’s tale ‘The Lady on the Grey’, first published in 16th June edition of The New Yorker magazine, 1951.

A rakish cad gets his just deserts when he’s bewitched by a mysterious young woman whilst out on a country stroll. One of the lighter (and shorter) tales in the anthology, with a fun sting in the tail.

With ‘The Lady on the Grey’ completed, there are now only six more lino prints to go until we have a fully illustrated anthology. The end is in sight! I’m working to an end of September deadline to get all of the artwork handed in to the folks at Unbound – including additional bits for the pledge rewards, additional illustration work etc. The book can then finally go into production for an Autumn 2021 publication. I’ll try my best to make it worth the wait, updating when I can with progress reports.

Cracking on with the next lino print, I’m going to be looking at one of my favourite Damnable Tales: Margery Lawrence’s ‘How Pan Came to Little Ingleton’. Stay tuned..!
