    I could spend a whole day just looking at your drawings. A breathtaking and emotive technique.

  • Much appreciated, Roger. I feel the same about your work, and did in fact spend quite a lot of time gaping at it yesterday :) I was working primarily in ink and graphite when I did this one; these days it’s early stages charcoal/graphite finishing. Goals are still the same, though- Explore, discover, and hope others will enjoy the results as much as I do their making. Thanks again!

    this is really imaginative and beautiful Mark. I can’t draw so I don’t know how much work goes into a beautiful drawing like this, but you have created a really superb piece of work

  • Thanks very much, James. I don’t remember now how much time I put into this one. Probably just as well I’ve forgotten :)
