This is an A1 Drawing of Delta Dawn in collaboration with Barssel, this is his model which I have taken and put into a drawing. The drawing is near complete, I would say it needs another few hours. I will upload that drawing when complete. Meanwhile, this is done in graphite, ink, watercolour and pastel.

I have also done this in a copper plate aquatint etching.

Thank you for looking at my art. This is my sixth drawing for my first semester. I am going to break from drawing now as I have reached my quota and focus on my printmaking. I have to do at least 12 prints in my first semester and I believe I am only half way there.

Updated on 10.5.08 after completion. This is finally finished. Thanks to my friend Barssel.

    TAlking in front of people about mental illness is a passion for me. I am like you and I want to let people know what its like, I enjoyed speaking but don’t know how the audience thought. The lecturer was happy and I felt good about that.
