The Grail

I just had to share this with you.  It's an awesome and amazing image, isn't it?

The hugely talented Lloyd Canning created this.  It's a sort of overall concept of the Grail, as discussed in The Grail; Relic of an Ancient Religion, which I'm currently publishing in monthly chapters on the Moon Books blog (  Every chapter comes complete with a black-and-white graphic drawing specially created for it by Lloyd.  But this full-colour acrylic painting is essentially the whole thing right there on canvas, and it first saw the light of day at the launch event for Who Killed William Shakespeare? at Waterstones in Stratford.  Now it's available as a high-quality print.

It's not exactly the best photo I've taken (doesn't really do justice to the original) but you get the idea.  Check out Lloyd Canning's Art on Facebook for more of his work.  I think we'll be hearing a lot more about Mr Canning as time goes by!

  1. Thank you Simon for giving Lloyd such a wonderful write up. His work is so energetic and full of magic and I agree that we have not heard the last of this wonderful person and artist.

    Best Wishes.

    P.s. I would love to buy your book but how do I get a signed edition? (
