Jim Baikie and Alan Moore

Art by Jim Baikie.
Above, the illustration drawn by Scottish comic creator JIM BAIKIE as contribution to Alan Moore: Portrait of an Extraordinary Gentleman (2003, Abiogenesis Press).

Jim Baikie passed away the 29th of December 2017: this post is a little tribute to the man and his art. You can read more about Baikie and his work here

Baikie collaborated with Moore on Skizz and First American.
"I’ve worked with some of the comics industry’s finest writers, and I have good things to say about all of them, but the sheer amount of extra effort Alan puts into communicating with the artist makes his scripts a joy; each one reads like a fraternal letter rather than workaday instruction for stage-dressing. Alan is writing one more instalment of ‘First American,’ and I know I’ll be laughing like a hyena as soon as the first closely typed page emerges upside down from my fax machine." [Jim Baikie, Alan Moore: Portrait, 2003].

Medical advice for Dean Martin

Dean Martin
A short poetry that Moore read during his performance at "Future Exiles Return to a Last London" event in September 2017. It's a funny piece - Moore has a great sense of humour - with an obvious reference to a famous song by Dean Martin. "I thought it up while I was walking towards the stage at the last Arts Lab poetry reading that we did in Northampton.", said Moore. After that he continued with "older works" reading an intense poetry he wrote dedicated to William Blake, titled "Experience". The complete performance is available HERE, in video.
