My Pretty Rose Tree

  • by

Luke Pickett has posted a piece that we did for KAGEMONO: FLOWERS AND SKULLS on his website. This version, unlike the one in Kagemono, is in full colour.

The story is “My Pretty Rose Tree”— based, obviously, on the William Blake poem.  Luke’s posting quickly drew attention from some of the lovely Blake-a-holics. you can view the story here. Check it out, it’s free and all, and Blake is Great Literature.

This is not the first time I’ve sourced Blake in my work–his writing and his art have both been huge inspirations to me since I was in high school. Sixsmiths readers will observe that the graphic novel closes with a quote from Blake’s Satanic Proverbs.
