My new book

Apr 20, 2016

"Glenn Gould never came to Nice" is my short story published by Pig Ear Press. Those of you who remember my book "The Poetry of Mr. Blue" will be able to read about Mr. Blue again. 

A very nice book production from Pete Lally's press, handsewn and with letterpressed covers.

Follow this link to Pig Ear Press and pick-up a copy, it doesn't cost much but you are supporting the small press - and this small press on Malta will publish my next poetry collection as well! 


More takes on Gerald Locklin

My painting of Gerry Locklin that was used on the cover of the book "Gerald Locklin, a critical introduction", edited by Michael Basinski. I like that Gerry is using the style of Bill Evans when playing his keyboard.    

Miles Davis drawings

Mar 27, 2016
Here two old Miles Davis drawings. I've been listening to his music since 1971. Love everything he did (except maybe his comeback band and the music after 1975...). My favorite period is 1970 and 1971, especially after bass player Michael Henderson came into the band. I saw Miles Davis first time in Stockholm in 1973.  

Henry Miller on Hydra in 1939

Mar 21, 2016
I'm on Hydra, waiting for the warm Greek sun.
I made this portrait of Henry Miller, based on a black and white photo taken here on Hydra in 1939. He was here together with the poet Katsimbalis and they visited the painter Ghikas (Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika) and stayed in his house here in Kamini.

After showing an old painting of a guitar on Facebook I was asked by some friends to paint their guitars. Hard to resist even though abstracts are more my style. But I love guitars!

Here a Yellow Fender Thinline Telecaster, a Black Gibson Les Paul Custom and a Red Gibson SG.
