MY PEOPLE PROUDLY WALKED THIS LAND
Art by Simon Kogan
Lately I’ve had no end of fun reciting a few of my poems while simultaneously improvising piano or guitar riffs. I call them Joe’s Art Songs. They’re short and I hope they’ll give you a moment or two of reflection and enjoyment.
The illustrations are by SIMON KOGAN, an internationally successful sculptor and artist. When he volunteered to do some illustrations for my poems, I jumped at the chance! You can view some of his work at simonkogan.com, I’m sure you’ll see why I consider him a great artist!

About Joe Illing
I hope you'll find my posts entertaining, occasionally edifying and worth whatever time you can spend with them ... Joe
