Isn't this artwork amazing? It's by Kerry Rawlinson and I was wowed when it was chosen to illustrate my Ad Hoc Fiction piece Days Like These (see previous blog post).
Kerry (kerryrawlinson.tumblr) is a talented artist and several of her pieces have been used to illustrate Ad Hoc winners, my favourites are Just a Crisp by Alison Wassell (@lilysslave) and Blue by Alva Holland (@Alva1206) - both incredibly moving pieces of writing.
Ad Hoc Fiction is a great place for writers and artists to flex their muscles and showcase their work - and free to enter! If you haven't seen it, take a look @AdHocFiction
Kerry kindly sent me her biography to share - do please check her out. Amazing!
