My Favourite Stuff: Julian Maclaren-Ross artwork

Yesterday I posted about Julian Maclaren-Ross on a BBC documentary and then I got to thinking that maybe I had never posted a photograph of my Julian Maclaren-Ross artwork.  I’m pretty sure I didn’t, so here’s a photo of the little poster he made for, I guess, the (unmade) television play My Name is Love (The Girl in the Spotlight) as the woman seems to be Sonia Orwell.  It would be from about 1961 if that’s the case, maybe? 

Excuse the angle and any glare, I bought the picture framed and although it’s badly framed I have left it that way for now, which makes it hard to photograph.  I really love the picture and his naive artwork – it makes me smile every time I pass it in the hallway.  It’s nice to have something as unusual as this in my collection, a drawing (coloured-in too!) by one of my favourite writers to accompany a piece of his work.  I’m such a fan-girl, aren’t I?

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.

  1. Go fan-girl go! How cool to own this!

    • I KNOW! It still amazes me every day when I look at it – it appeared in the biography of JMR, but only a small section of it (his drawing of himself playing the piano). I’ve always assumed it was “genuine” (especially since it appeared in the biography) but I just like it anyway – whoever drew it. But if JMR drew it, even better. He did used to make his own film posters, so it’s totally possible. I LOVE it!!!
