Testing of my beautiful new Gullor fountain pens and Waterman inks on a portrait of a young Salvador Dali.
Apparently the photograph was taken of Dali by Luis Buñuel around the time of the making of Un Chien Andalou.
One suggestion is that Dali’s father strongly opposed his relationship with his future wife, Gala, he banished him from the family home. Before leaving for Paris to join her, Dali shaved his head and buried the hair at Cadaqués beach.
I have been reorganising my site a bit. I decided to use the WordPress Portfolio system, which allows you to build a network of pages showcasing work. I thought it might free up some time and energy as there is so much built in functionality there.
It’s early days yet, but I have changed some of the menu above to reflect the changes. You can see the full portfolio pages here.
As well as giving each project it’s own page the system provides specific pages for tags and types so as I add more things the possibilities of how things can be viewed and juxtaposed increases, which I find very interesting.
Here’s a few different groupings below to give you an idea:

This is a real hotchpotch of drawings from various places over the last few months. As my time is very short I have taken on the process of starting the sketch from life, taking a photo, then finishing the drawing later from reference. This was against my original principle of doing this project, but it’s that or not getting anything done, so.
I have made some of these drawings available as signed digital prints on my Big Cartel store. Please have a look, there is some of my colour work available there too.
Sometimes I have made short little videos of the process of the drawing and you can see those by clicking on the Instagram link below the image and swiping to the left.
