Hope to see you there.
'The Tricksters Hat' is now available in the stores. Please, do hop over to your local bookshop and take a peek. And if I may be bold, would you also be so kind as to tell anyone and everyone you know who gives a damn about creativity that the book has been published.
The Trickster's Hat is a 208 page hardcover, full color, workshop book that amongst other things contains 49 exercises designed to help experienced and inexperienced writers, artists, teachers and wide-eyed wonderers go deeper within themselves, expand their imaginations and break creative blocks. It's not a 'how to do', or a 'how to be' kinda book, it's a mischievous companion that will hopefully stay nestling in your pocket for years to come.
*The Etsy Bantockart store is going great guns, thank you to everyone who has bought my original pieces.
The art varies greatly and ranges from Griffin and Sabine preliminary sketches to small collages, and the prices are all between $100 and $900. Just Google: Etsy Bantockart https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/BANTOCKart
*I’m working hard on ‘The Isle of Sarte’ (next fiction), to be published in 2015.
*And for anyone in Brazil, you might be interested to know that Griffin and Sabine has just been optioned to Brazil as a play to be staged in Portuguese.
