The making of a monster
Stephen likes corners and since he's the creation I get asked about more than any other, it seemed only fair that he had one here too. Except I didn't create him, he just sort of ...wandered in. To try and explain where he did come from, I began making artefacts containing clues to his origins and hopefully, a little taste of what it's like to be him. His story has now become a project in its own right with contributions from friends and fellow artists/authors, some of which are shown below. The full file is available to buy and comes with free printable extras as it continues to grow. Of course, it didn't stop there and Stephen now has his own suitcase which you can peek in here.

when researching the period Stephen was a patient, the Wellcome Library archive was an invaluable resource.
