The poet announces himself, and comes 'piping down the valleys wild'. This picture, like the whole set, was commissioned by composer Harke Jan van der Meulen (www.harkejan.nl) who has written new settings for William Blake's poems.The project has resulted in two live performances and a book + CD, with Blake's poems and my illustrations to them, and the songs performed by vocal ensemble Quatre Bouches (www.quatrebouches.com). Book/cd (€ 20) can be ordered from me. This YouTube video  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVbwzkq9qEU is a compilation of the first live performance (with projected pictures),
