Taking Lines for a Walk

26/06/2009

Today’s tour stop is at the blog of Dundee-born artist Douglas Robertson. Doug has turned our chat via Facebook messages into a fine post about my sequence of “Hebridean Thumbnails”, incorporating the poems themselves and beautiful, deft sketches he has created to accompany them. I say it’s about the sequence, but that’s really only the jumping-off point for a discussion of monostiches and minimalism in art more generally, exploring some of the connections between writing and visual art.

Next week also sees two tour stops: on Monday, Dumbfoundry hosts Ivy Alvarez‘s interview with me; on Thursday, I’ll be getting slightly political and theological over at Mark Calder’s Boxologies blog. Owing to the London gig and some redecorating at home, I might not get the chance to link to Ivy’s post until Thursday. Should be quicker off the mark with Mark’s, though.
