Pete's PD Portraits #5: Mervyn Peake




This one is goin' out to my friends at PDUK. I hear the rest of you out there murmuring "Mervyn Peake ? Who in blazes was Mervyn Peake?

Glad you ask. Peake was one of the most formidable of those rare creators who earn distinction in more than one field. A talented writer and visual artist, the only comparison that he calls to mind is William Blake. Talent, style and good looks, Peake had it all, including Parkinson's.

Okay, now my son HAS to see this site! I didnt' know Mervin Peake had Parkinson's, but I DO know his books. My son handed one to me (Titus Groan) and said, READ THIS, in a voice usually reserved for mothers speaking to sons. I read it.

Hi Terri, I have read some of "Titus", but I confess, I prefer Peake's pictures. His draftsmansip is phenomenal!
