New Artist: Helen Burke!

New Artist: Helen Burke!

In July it was quite rightly brought to the Eel's attention that even though she accepts art work for her zine, there is very little mention of it on her website. In August, the Eel decided she should do something about it and dedicated an entire section of her site to everything arty. Her Resident Artist, Denny Marshall got the ball rolling by sharing his thoughts on those dreaded rejection letters we've all received at some stage. She is very pleased to announce some new additions to her Art Section. Because Denny is a never-ending mine of creativity and takes his position at Eel's Fish Quarters very seriously, she is thrilled to say that Denny has provided some of his previously unpublished colour art to accompany his article. 

As if that wasn't enough, the Eel is proud to welcome her V.I.P. Guest Artist for September/October, Helen Burke! A round of fins for Helen! Written specifically for the Eel's fishers, the Eel is thrilled to  feature Helen's exclusive article, Painting Through the Looking-Glass, in which she describes her artistic journey being like going through Alice's looking-glass. Helen has also very kindly allowed the Eel to showcase some of her art to go with her exclusive, but why are you still here listening to the Eel prattle on? Go and check out Helen's work for yourselves!

Brace yourselves...The Eels are coming!

The temperature is dropping, the leaves are falling and the nights are getting shorter. Once again, the Eel and her editorial Small Fry have abandoned sleep, preferring to chain smoke and drink gallons of coffee in between  feverishly typing the night away. This can mean only one thing. Yep, you guessed it: ISSUE THREE IS COMING! Featuring more mind-blowing art work from the Eel's Artist in Residence, Denny Marshall, along with work from the likes of Ian Parks Mary Stone Dockery and Miriam Sagan, Issue Three will be swimming your way from October 1st! For the literary fishermen out there who cannot wait for the fleet of Eels to make their perilous journeys through the world's postal service, the Eel will have more scaly goodness available on line. Following the success of Guest Appearances from Victoria Watson and  Rose Drew, the Eel can confirm that the indefatigable Meg Tuite will be rocking the Eel's Guest Blogger section from October 1st. It's all happening here at the Humber's Mouth!
