Mal Dean

   A really significant influence and inspiration on me , Mal’s drawings jumped into my world from the pages of the weekly music paper “ Melody Maker “ back in the early seventies . He showed me a way to respond graphically to music , most particularly jazz , and  pretty much overnight there was a new road ahead . It took a long time for me to fully absorb these new possibilities , and for my technique to reach the necessary level…..nearly twenty years , I guess….but all that time his drawings and  ideas were fermenting away in my subconscious . Thank you , Mal .
