I wrote some flash fiction (a very short story) for the upcoming art book The Sixty: Arts of Andy Bigwood (here). For each of the sixty illustrations Andy has in the book, a writer has written some flash fiction inspired by the picture. I found that great fun. As Andy’s book nears its launch (April 22nd), all sorts of friends are posting blog entries to say they have contributed flash fiction too. Hi guys!
Andy’s a nice bloke who was very forgiving of my inept attempts to display the originals of his artwork at the Newcon 4 convention. (If you know the Only Fools and Horses… scene with the chandelier, you get the idea…)
Andy’s also won lots of awards and is currently shortlisted for the BSFA Award for best artwork for his cover for Conflicts. The successor to Conflicts is (strangely) Further Conflicts. I’m in that anthology and Andy did the artwork for that one too. You can see some of his magnificent work at the Andy Bigwood page on deviantART.
