On the Cover of a Magazine – Who’s that Girl?

A great article from Jane, about her artwork on the latest edition of Longshot Island magazine. I’m inside too!

Jane Lee McCracken, Artist

Version 2

Featured on the cover of this November’s Longshot Island literary magazine, is one of Jane’s most personal artworks, The Sideboard I.  An exciting new press, Longshot Island publishes contemporary fiction and non-fiction by talented writers from across the globe. When editor-in-chief D.S.White approached Jane to feature her artwork, she was delighted he wanted to include several Biro drawings from her series ‘Tales from the East’.

Jane McCracken [Colour Artwork] ‘The Sideboard II’ 2008 red Biro drawing The Sideboard triptych portrays the anonymous memories of a small child at play within the safety of home, before the onset of war. The drawings were inspired by the little girl in the red coat from the film Schindler’s List 1993 Steven Spielberg, as she wanders through the Kraków Ghetto while it is being liquidated by the German Army during WWII.

    1. I cannot praise Jane’s art enough. It is worth remembering it is all done in ballpoint pen!
      I have bought two of her prints in the past, and I am now waiting to receive a commissioned work from her too.
      Best wishes, Pete.

        1. They are not too expensive for what they are, Kim. I also have two T-shirts with her designs on them.
          They were limited editions, also very reasonably priced, and sold to support animal charities. I have also bought some greeting cards, direct from her.
          Go on her mailing list, and you will see the offers when they occur, with no requirement to buy anything.
          I only ‘met’ Jane through blogging, and I’m so happy that I did.
          Best wishes, Pete.

  1. Excellent artwork. Jane Lee McCracken is a very talented artist. I’ve read Schindler’s List, and have seen the movie as well. I can understand the inspiration. Congratulations to Jane for the publication of her work in this new edition of Longshot Island!

    1. Thanks, James. This is my third time published in that magazine, and I am also very happy to have introduced Jane to the editor. They accept submissions, reviews, poetry etc, and also offer cheap classified advertising. Your new book perhaps?
      Best wishes, Pete.
