Bob Pegg words ~ music ~ place contact: catsback@gmail.com Over the years I’ve been privileged to work with some inspiring visual artists, and I wanted to include examples of their  work on the site. Kate Mellor may be better known as a photographer than as a graphic artist, but I think her work in the  latter field is exquisite. Back in the 1970s, when we were both living in Hebden Bridge, she contributed the illustration of  my song Aunt Lucy Broadwood, the first image here, to the classroom book Pathways, which I edited with Mike Ezard.  The next three images acompany my song Fiddler’s Cross, and the last is from the song A Warning to Minstrels.  John Hodkinson is an old chum, and long-time collaborator. The second row is all his work. The first couple of images  were made in the early 1980s to accompany my song cycle Bones. Outwitting the Devil, The Last Wolf, and The Three  Gifts  are digital prints created for The Tin Road Exhibition, inspired by stories John heard during our Tales at Martinmas  storytelling festival in Ross and Cromarty. For more of John’s work, visit www.harthead.com.  Beginning the third row is Suzanne Gyseman, a visionary artist who lives in the Highlands and who made the ink  drawing  of the Travellers’ wagons that was so perfect for our Tales at Martinmas festival. The remaining images are all  of work made in storytelling workshops for young people in Ross and Cromarty as part of the award-winning Merry  Dancers Storytelling Project (2002-2005). The artists involved in the workshops were Jane Atterton, Jane Bregazzi,  Stephen Hayward and Inge Smith. Names of the artists are given where known.  Just click on the images to enlarge them.  Aunt Lucy Broadwood: Kate Mellor Fiddler's Cross - at the Crossroads: Kate Mellor Fiddler's Cross - the Girl in a Cloak: Kate Mellor Fiddler's Cross - a Tune to Change Night into Day: Kate Mellor The Tomb of the Tongue: Kate Mellor Bones - Odin's Ravens: John Hodkinson Bones - at the Crossroads: John Hodkinson The Catwomen's Three Gifts - Scarf, Whistle and Purse: John Hodkinson The Last Wolf: John Hodkinson The Cromarty Mermaid: Cromarty Primary School An Tacharan - the Changeling: Fortrose Academy, year 1 Fenya the Giant Girl: Molly Fearne, Dingwall after school club The Graeae The Wee Man of Eathie Burn: Black Isle Schools Hugh Miller Project Scoraig Story Carving: Scoraig Primary School, with Stephen Hayward Outwitting the Devil: John Hodkinson Tales at Martinmas: Suzanne Gyseman Red Hot CD Cover: P4, Tarradale School, Muir of Ord A Wych Elm Story - CD cover: Connor Sloggett, Ullapool High School
