“Visions of Pope Adrian 37th began life as an attempt at a graphic novel. It quickly became apparent however that this was not to be. With no plot, characters or successive imagery, such components and the like meant gradually evolving pictures and occasional text revealing instead recurring themes and techniques occurring at quite often several pages apart. Messages can be in patterns, or formally, in that each drawing has its own border for example reiterating previous subjects, a page may emerge drawn without memory of the one before, or drawn to contradict even to create dichotomy, dismantle poetry. Later to rebuild meaning. I should like to cover the whole universe in drawing, but it’s already been done”
