Drawing a Diagram cover

 

“For all the coolness of Badcoe’s work, its poise and measure, there is huge intensity beneath its surface, and sly humour, and much beauty.”
– Conor O’Callaghan, author of four collections published by Gallery Press in Ireland and Wake Forest University Press in the US, including Fiction and The Sun King.
