POETRY ILLUSTRATION – WHEN WORDS AND PICTURES DANCE THE GOOD DANCE

Finding the images to go with a poem can be a very fine line to dance along. Images that come up are personal to everyone who reads the poem. And yet many things about any poem are universal. They tug at common heart-strings; the language is designed to distil a lot of feeling and meaning into very few words. Illustrating poetry is up there as the champagne of illustration, for me. How can one not feel honoured when asked to embellish someone else’s work of art?

These are a few selected poems from an English textbook for publishers Shuter & Shooter, Pietermaritzburg. 

Enjoy the poetry and you are most welcome to weigh in with your thoughts on any poem and/or image.
