I have nearly finished the Stantas drawings. As Dan says I am doing every one by hand and I have to say they do vary a bit which is I suppose is what you want in something that is handmade. Some look exactly like Stalin, a few look a bit like Frank Zappa or the owner of your local Turkish restaurant, I hope those of you who pre-ordered the book enjoy them. I had to relearn a few of the skills I haven't used since art school.
My friend Mandy pointed out I forgot to put in the listings that on the 11 th of September I’ll be doing a signing at News From Nowhere, Liverpool’s wonderful independent political bookshop and as an extra incentive for those who have read the book or the extract in the Sunday Times, that “great comic creation” as Frank Cottrel Boyce called her-my mother Molly will also be there.
