A Poem (‘Flurry’) and a watercolour ‘illustration’ actually done as a project for one of the evening classes that I teach.
Immediately below are pages from a sort of ‘film noir’ short story.

This was a while back, before I started really getting to grips with computer graphics – now I’d use photos too for this sort of thing, I think. But the staging is the easy bit, it’s how to represent the players on it that’s the real challenge!
