An Unknown Island - Chapter 1
Hey, so my friend Tom Morris is releasing his serial novel An Unknown Island and I’m doing the illustration bits for it.
Alongside the book are two soundtracks, one for each of the main characters. Occasionally, the tracks can be overlaid to create a new third track. The soundtracks will expand upon themes and moments within each chapter.
It’s released on the 10th of October and you can get it here:
AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: You know where you’ll be in 2 weeks time, right? Attending our final year degree show at the RCA, that’s where. Opens to the public from June 18th, for 2 weeks only. Come get your mind blown by the work of 7 (count ‘em) departments in the school. No excuses!
Oh yeah, and my final year film will be showing too.
Yeah!!!!! What Jess said!
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone.
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead,
Put crépe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song,
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong
The stars are not wanted now, put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
