fabulous art sir!
Thank you Jacque! Do you know of Aleister Crowley?
– John Dicandia ( JinnDoW )
What a powerful portrait of an iconic figure Jovan. So raw and full of impact!
He was certainly an odd character as Loui suggest but a fascinating one too. Hope you are having fun in Manila. : P
great drawing of an odd character to say the least
An odd character but a nonetheless fascinating one Loui. Many thanks and hope you are well my friend. : D
Lovely portrait work John – never heard of him – will look. :-)
Hello Catherine and hope everything is well. Btw.. His name is Aleister Crowley, look him up.
no i didn’t when i saw magus i googled. :) just did another one on his name too… :)
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 lookingan extraordinary character from a by gone agegreat 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
So good that it is absolutely criminal!!!February 24, 2012
Many thanks Deborah, I’m sure Aleister would be honoured to be included with such an illustrious group of unsavoury characters. : D

Many thanks Adam. Big fan of your work. : D
