'Fireworks' by Robert Van Egghen illustrated

As a little project i was asked to illustrated this poem for an anthology of creative writing students' work at the UEA. The abstract nature of the language and imagery of poetry influenced these paper cutouts.

and here they are with the poem


  1. Hi Callum, I came across this purely by chance, and actually had no idea the work I submitted for the anthology was to be illustrated. It's fantastic! I've worked with a couple of artists/illustrators in the past and it's always fascinating seeing how differently people interpret things. Really like what you've done - gives an interestingly sinister edge to the poem

  2. Ah thanks very much. Im excited to see the printed anthology with all the collaborated work.
