Archiving Clive's Artwork - Capturing The Images
Clive has always drawn and painted alongside his writing and other creative work. His larger scale oil paintings have come

volumes, but his wider range of work has been celebrated in
gallery exhibitions in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

to make certain that viewing the artworks in this book are as close as possible to the actual
Jim Kay of Transmission Atelier
is undertaking both the image capture and the colour correction and we're delighted to present this ongoing journal, documenting his work in Clive's studio.
