Paper Publication

  Finished two entries this week for Paper publication. Paper is a small collective in Bristol that has had it's first issue pressed and is out and around showcasing Bristol artists, as well as continuing to hold their gallery space in the town centre, which started in Christmas and is still rolling due to popularity (also I have some prints in their if you happen to be passing by . . .) The theme for the entry was 'future' meaning to illustrate what could possibly happen any time from now. I can't wait to see what everyone else and put in as entries! More excited for that then to see if I get into the next issue.

  My first entry was describing how mankind has played God too long with genetically modified crops which have since then turned back on their creators, forcing humanity to flee from its civilisations and escaping to the safety of true nature, but safe for how long . . . ?

  The second has a pretty different feel but I couldn't resist the pun! When thinking how could one man possibly decide the fate of existence I was struck with the answer, who knows!
  But then wait! Who knows . . . ? Hugh knows! The task cannot fall onto any less worthy than Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall himself.
