Working ideas for Mastering Silhouettes, Fifty Shades and other written publications about silhouettes.

Mastering Silhouettes book covers

The Book is Launched!

MY NEW BOOK, Mastering Silhouettes, was launched last month with a small party at the London Sketch Club.  We were fortunate enough to be sponsored by Hendricks Gin, after I worked at their “umbrella emporium” party last year. They supplied the drink, so it was a small but tasty party.  Thank you Hendricks!

I NEED TO ASK for a little help. I’ve been commissioned to write a silhouette book, which for me is very exciting.  The book is due to come out sometime in 2012. There’s only one real problem. I don’t know how to write!

The book will feature a wide variety of silhouette portraits, both traditional and modern, interspersed with snippets of history about eccentric silhouettists from the eighteenth century onwards. It’s exactly the kind of book I’ve been planning to write for years.

It needs to include a lot of silhouettes. Could yours be one of them?
