about

'In The Beginning Was The Word, Then A Drawing, Then More Words, Another Drawing, And So On, And So On' is a sequential chain that alternates from poet to illustrator, a creative game of ping pong that takes each artist on a path they would not have discovered on their own. Responding to each others original and sometimes witty thoughts, they explore the darkness and the light, ask 'why are we doing this?' and 'where is all this leading?' as they take us on a journey from the beginning of time and through unexplored space to find an unknown destination in an uncertain and peculiar world.

Editorial Reviews

“Like a good gin and tonic.”Lemn Sissay “Moving, amusing, revealing and compelling.”Jonathan Ross “Dan Cockrill is a poet of nuance, whispers and extraordinarybeauty, who holds his pen as though it were the pointer on a compass. These poems navigate between worlds and map the distance between them, drawing them together. These are impossible poems, small things which contain the universe. Each poem is a response to a picture, each picture drawn in response to a poem. This is a book of circles. Own it.” Joelle Taylor “Cor, I love this book, such a lovely turn of phrase and sensitivity and humour. This book is playful and profound, surreal and laugh out loud funny. There is a wonderful comedy and romance in here, a beautiful collaboration and a colourful celebration of the now.”Salena Godden “Damien Weighill draws pictures that feed words into your head.Daniel Cockrill writes words that feed pictures into your head.By the time I got to the end of this book I had a casserole of lifein my head and I’m still eating it now.”Rob Auton “Dan Cockrill is a very human human and, as both poet and person, he approaches this mad, sad, beautiful world with the perfect combination of playfulness and betrayed disappointment. What I love about his writings is what I love about life: One moment it has you giggling at the daftness of it all; the next it just breaks your heart.”Jonny Fluffypunk
