Artist's Description

About This Drawing
Thought I’d add this one – goes a bit further back than the Escape Series, though it’s in the same vein.

I was probably 15 years old when I drew this – still at school and learning about Classical Greece and Rome, which fascinated and inspired me. But because it was in Scotland and I’d had to opt for the “Languages” stream, there had been no art in my curriculum for the previous 2 years – so I had to make my own time and projects to get art into my life.

Drawn from a beautiful classical cameo featuring Alexander the great and his mother (see below). Graphite pencil on exercise-book paper 7 × 8 in, worked on in Fireworks.
