Bring Neil Shakespeare Back

May 29, 2007

Does anybody know what happened to Neil Shakespeare? [We’ve paid homage in this space before.] His website is gone, and his blog has been replaced with something in a language that I do not recognize. He hasn’t responded to an email inquiry, which out of respect, I will not repeat.

Have the nature of his work, and the nature of the proposed Intellectual Property Protection Act of 2007 perhaps compelled him to take his work down? If so: a travesty!

I sincerely hope you are ok, Neil. Your bright commentary and the biting satire of your artwork will be missed. Here’s hoping everything is ok, and that [a lucrative publishing contract/top secret government commission] stipulates that your work be exclusively available in their series of [collectible coffee table books/’Winning the Hearts and Minds’ propaganda posters.] I’d [pre-order that at my local independent bookstore/like to get my hands on some of those prints!]

    Another site that hasn’t had a new posting in months (ok, since April 5) is Of course, the incomparable Elton Beard would take off for long spells in the past, but I miss it.

    Fafblog’s been gone almost 11 months now, but there’s that ever slight glimmer of hope as long as the blog/archives remain. Neil Shakespeare is just… gone.

    I’ve made a note of Busy, Busy, Busy and will monitor for signs of life.

    I came across your blog when I finally had the bright idea to Google Neil to see if perhaps he had reappeared in a different guise. No such luck. However, I have found a number of blogs all lamenting his disappearence. I, too, hope he is well.
