What and why...

Since losing my job in December 2012, I have dedicated myself to music and culture. Learning how to film and edit short movies and internet tv programmes, photoshop and new musical projects as well as production dance & theater and now band & stage management. So why not writing & photography too?


What I do...

I'm a singer, entertainer and artistic director with Selva Entertainment. Recently working on Dance-Theater Project as stage manager and actor, I find myself for ever looking for new ways of self expression and self help... that's when I started to write... I've lived in Catalonia for half my life and so speak both English and Catalan.


The Present...

My project right now is a book of poems and reflections written in English and translated into Catalan. Hand drawn illustrations and photographs will accompany each composition. In the future the idea is to work with musicians to produce songs with them.

The Book...

The book will be approx 40-50 pages of 15 verses accompanied by illustrations and photos. Size 16,5x24cm in full colour.
This I believe to be not only a small book of thoughts and poems, art and photography, but also a way to join my language, English with Catalan.


Inspiration...

Sitting alone on the balcony overlooking the mountain of Santa Barbara, listening to the sounds of the night and traveling deep inside myself. I found myself with pen and paper in hand.


The Artist...

Working with an artist in the UK, 'GPJ', illustrations are to be drawn and the odd painting to help describe each poem, which will help in the interpretation. Also photographs of feelings and emotions.

The Money...

The money will be used to pay towards the printing of the books and the artist for the drawings.

When will it be ready...

Most of the writing is complete and now needs translating. The drawings and photos are to follow. The idea is to have everything ready in time for the spring.

#04 / Segueixo buscant mecenes / I continue searching for mecenes

Segueixo buscant mecenes sobre el meu viatge Verkami.
Com les estacions canvien d'estiu a tardor i l'hivern s'acosta, la pluja cau i cobreix la terra en una capa brillant de la vida. La llum del sol brilla a través dels núvols amenaçadors i em sento aquí i m'esperi.
El viatge és curt de només 40 dies, i gràcies per la teva ajuda per arribar a la meva meta ...

Summer Nights : me, myself and I (Nits d'estiu: jo, jo i jo)
Un llibre de poemes i pensaments en anglès i català, amb il·lustracions i fotos.
Per Anthony James Meenaghan

I continue searching for mecenes on my Verkami journey.
As the seasons change from summer to autumn and the winter draws nigh, the rain falls and covers the land in a shiny coat of life. The sun light shimmers through the menacing clouds and I sit here and I wait.
The journey is short only 40 days and thank you for your help to arrive at my goal... Thank you.

#02 / Happy Sunday

The winter is coming and yet the summer doesn't want to go and so it warms our faces as it warms our hearts with it's powerful energy blocked only by a few whispering clouds.
Happy Sunday

L'hivern s'acosta i encara l'estiu no vol anar i s'escalfa la nostres cares com que escalfa els nostres cors amb està poderosa energia només bloquejat per alguns núvols susurrantes.
