This blog isn’t one I’m intending to use that much, but at the same time, what better place than here to announce book news, new releases, or share my thoughts about writing, and authory things in general? So it is that since I have significant news. Drumroll.
The next new release from Hamgee University Press will be an art book. Well, alright, a funny art book because let’s face it, nothing I do is going to be that serious.
Eyebomb, Therefore I am, will feature street art. Here’s the blurb:
Step into a world where inanimate objects come to life and where a simple pair of googly eyes holds the power to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. This book invites you to immerse yourself in the whimsical and hilarious world of eyebombing; the art of sticking googly eyes on unsuspecting objects to unleash the joy within.
As you turn each page, you’ll find yourself smiling at the unexpected personalities that emerge from every day objects ranging from lampposts and traffic signs to automatic hand driers. The juxtaposition of the ordinary and the unusual challenges societal norms, reminding us to embrace new or different things, and to find humour in the unlikeliest of places.
Whether you’re a fan of street art, a lover of comedy, or simply seeking a joyous escape from the mundane, this photo book is sure to leave you grinning from ear to ear.
Personally I think that blurb is a bit grim but it’s probably more likely to sell books than the kind of blurb I’d enjoy reading. I am not sure if I will do pre-orders for this one or sell it via Kickstarter. It seems sensible to do Kickstarter, really, because it doesn’t really translate to ebook format, and I think the audio version would be quite boring.
