Is Jonathan Griffin (editor) cross with me, I haven’t returned the proofs of the Grizedale book – a survey of what has been going on here over the past 5 years - it's a struggle to let go of it. I know the reality needs to be ‘translated’ but I fear the tidying up process of it all, it's a difficult balance. I have been drawing cartoons - as kind of footnotes - featuring a monkey – a reference to the animal, awkward, perverse nature of the programme. I am just not to sure if it’s a good idea, here’s one of the images – what do you think?
The first image relates to an incident years ago when Mark Wallinger was face painting at a event and made a bit of a mess of a request for a tiger, explaining to the child that it had come out more like a monkey, the child rather magnanimously declared that a monkey had been his second choice.
