Currently I’m face-and-eyes into two illustration projects and a revision of a novel I’ve been working on forever:
- Award-winning non-fiction author, Jenny Higgins, had this idea for a children’s book about pre-confederation Newfoundland and Labrador women. I’ve had a lot of fun creating digital collages that illustrate these action-packed women from the suffragette era. This project is to be published by Boulder Press.
- My second comic book about the sinking of the S.S. Caribou on October 14th, 1942, Lifeboats Down is scheduled to be released by Breakwater Books in the spring of 2020. (If you had a relative on the S.S. Caribou that night, please check out my page “S.S. Caribou: Passengers & Crew 14/10/1942”.)
Morgan’s Printing/art Studio is currently set up in the main floor of the Neal Building. Keep your eyes open for my Pop-up Propaganda Press my small platform of political thought and free speech.
If you are interested buying anything you’ve seen at a show or craft fair, my work is available at the Red Ochre Gallery, 96 Duckworth Street, St. John’s, NL: http://www.redochregallery.ca and Devon House Gallery.
