In 1992 The Artist formerly known as Jim Mortimore was commissioned to create a digital portrait of Princess Anne. During this process The Artist was made redundant from his job as a graphic designer. The portrait hung for several months in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The Artist himself was nearly hung after inadvertently leaving a digital wristwatch Blu Tacked to his workstation monitor, which then prompted a call by his somewhat paranoid line manager to the local police, who then called in the local bomb squad y'know, just in case.
Since The Incident of the Blu Tack on the Monitor at Midnight, The Artist has written a bunch of books ‘n’ plays ‘n’ wotnot, including Doctor Who, Babylon 5, Cracker, The Tomorrow People, Bernice Summerfield and other original works such as Skaldenland (a fantasy novel) and The Sun in the Bone House (a short story collection), for literary disseminators as diverse as Virgin Publishing, Big Finish, Macmillan Publishing, Bantam, Doubleday, Dell, and BBC Books. Not too recently, the Artist's short story The Sun in the Bone House was suggested for a Nebula Award. The Artist's books (and wotnot) have been translated into languages as diverse as German, French, Japanese and American. His Cracker novel The Mad Woman in the Attic was adapted into two completely different audio books. That's one for each ear if you come from this planet.
