A Circus Mind is a compilation of rock n roll inspired poems by Ryan Cox. The book weaves through the annals of rock n roll to paint an expressive history of the bands and their music. Exploring the reaches of every corner of the music world from the Rolling Stones recording of Exile on Main St in Nellcôte, France to the Willie Nelson long-haired outlaw country of the 70's and the socially conscious island rhythms of Bob Marley to the explosive grunge rock of the Seattle trio, Nirvana. Carefully crafting intricate rhymes with surreal imagery of the real life events that characterized the careers of many of the defining artists of the 20 century, Ryan delivers a unique perspective and fresh take of the rock n roll elite.
Along with the vivid written imagery, the book is accompanied with a striking collection of illustrations by an international collection of six illustrators. Former Abbey Road Studios lead designer and London based illustrator, Andy Potts, mixes hand crafted elements with digital collage and lots of color. 2012 Applied Arts Photography & Illustration Award winner, Dushan Milic, has taken the lead of the design and layout of A Circus Mind, as well as a contributing illustrator. Dushan specializes in people, concepts & portraits that are drawn via pen & ink, or with Wacom & digitally colored, movement & gesture dominate with a quirkiness generated from a drawn-from-the-gut approach that breathes life into his illustrations. Past Applied Arts Photography & illustration winner, Julia Minamata, contributes illustrations as a living embodiment of the written word with bold colors and style. Jacqui Oakley specializes in portraiture, unexpectedly blending patterns and textures. Based in Chile, Zela Lobb produces powerfully sharp and emotional illustrations. Elissa Parente brings a spontaneous and expressive flavor to A Circus Mind with ink, acrylics, oil and collage.
