'Snake' ink, c1977

I had a really fine-tipped Rotring pen, and I enjoyed doing small-scale images, creating tones using the dot technique.

Here we go then! I'll aim to update regularly, with different images from the mid 1970's onwards.


This one is from 1975. It's an image copied from a comic.

My father would bring me home a comic once a week, and, having enjoyed the contents, it was my habit to copy characters and scenes using pencil on paper. I don't remember exactly when this started, but I was 13 when I did this one.

a visit to the past

'Rescued' a whole pile of old drawings and books from my mother's loft recently. Most of the drawings were of no value to me, so I destroyed them. I had forgotten about them all, but when I saw them again after twenty years or so, particular ones just had to be kept alive! I'm aiming to develop a digital record of pieces of art I've made since way, way back!
