I wanted to write in and let you know how much I enjoyed the interview with Peter de Sève in issue 145. His life and journey to becoming an artist were entertaining and insightful, and his analogy that creating good art is like telling a good joke has stayed with me ever since. More interviews like that one please! Eric M Hargis, US
Claire replies Many thanks for writing in, Eric. We enjoyed that one, too. Often great anecdotes are down to the artist’s personality. But it’s often down the journalist, too – in this case the very talented Gary Evans. Interviewing skills, and especially the knack of teasing out anecdotes from sometimes more introverted characters, is a much under-rated skill. Don’t you worry, we plan many more like this!
Eric really enjoyed issue 145’s interview with artist Peter de Sève.
