  • Fascinating character, like Oscar Wilde he had preference for Southern European males, figuratively speaking. I have an interesting book about him.

    wow aleister crowley as a young man definitely enigmatic looking
    an extraordinary character from a by gone age
    great portrait john you have captured an enigmatic essence in youthfull form

  • He had an incredible intense and hypnotic look. That’s what intrigued me about the photo I saw so I was compelled to draw him. Have you read much about him?

    Interesting work, Giovanni, about this strange and controversial personnality… “the wickedest man in the world”… I don’t think he was co-founder of the Golden dawn, which existed since about 10 years when he joined it…

  • Sorry you’re right Dominique, it was MacGregor Mathers and Samuel Liddell who founded the order of the Golden Dawn, nonetheless Crowley was probably one of the most influential and contraversial figures of the 20th century. Maybe rather dubious for some people.

    Very nice John love the medium choice. The black graphite subject in front of a washed brown background is a nice combo.

  • I love the contrasting effect black graphite makes with a washed down watercolour background. Thank you for noticing Mui_Ling. : D
