The above poster is for the Stoke Newington literary festival where SHAUN ATTWOOD and GAVIN KNIGHT will be in attendance. Shaun's images where taken from previous compositions before it was worked out how Gavin's side of things would fit in. Gavin's angle is urban thug culture, like dogs, guns, drugs and policemen etc. To see the final version, visit the link below and click to enlarge.
Both the two school boys and Shaun on the left here were individually cut from small low-resolution photographs. The subtle glow around each of them combined with the cloudy backdrop represents daylight from the perils of incarceration; or a happy ending, if you prefer. The washy reflection business on the right as Shaun talks to the young lad in prison clobber proved to be a particularly smart effect. Sheriff Joe looks out of place on a Union Jack however; the flags need swapping around.
Above is a variant cover of Shaun's e-book, featuring violent jail-house fights to the death. T-Bone is a big, big character with a big, big heart, like me. Available on the Amazon link below.
Sheriff Joe is best known for making his prisoners wear pink and feeding them on dead rat stew. Click on the shaun attwood tag underneath for more info, including interview here at Donnie's Dustbin.
Shaun is on the radio and TV and in schools, so best of luck. Keep fighting das good fight!
