I'm not certain if i'm the only one to address this, i've searched the QZ site for past forums as well.

BUT! at the start of Chapter Four in the book, Peter Freestone mentions that FM had a little contempt for various pieces of art being sold for massive sums. He states that Freddie asked him for a pencil and pad, and he quickly rendered something very akin to it... WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THE PHOTOS SECTION.

however... AT LEAST IN MY COPY it IS NOT included.

Had anyone else noticed this?

Also. RELATED. Is there an online exhibition or actual exhibit of Freddie's gesture work, artwork etc? I have only seen peeks of his work in "the Untold story" could anybody possibly link me to a site that shows some of his handiwork?

From time to time, i've been known to do artwork. I find it seriously interesting, and i've grown VERY curious about the man's physical artwork. I've heard about his painting of Jimi Hendrix which adorned his flat.. but has anyone made an effort to comprehensively gather "the artwork of Freddie Mercury"?

could someone possibly get in touch with the author?

just adding my own reply to get this one back up till someone answers it...

WHY IS THERE NO PHOTOGRAPH OF FREDDIES WORK INCLUDED IN THE FREESTONE BOOK, WHEN CHAPTER FOUR DELIBERATELY MENTIONS IT?
