Hope no-one was too shocked to see a load of naked women suddenly appear on this site yesterday, only to disappear again. They belong on my other site which I’m in the process of setting up.
I’ve mastered the scanner and am now trying to master the art of loading up the site with my illustration work. I’ll be concentrating on a vague project I’ve been dabbling with for ages of illustrating the two epic poems “Orlando Innamorato” and “Orlando Furioso”, an absurdly ambitious task, but it keeps me out of mischief.
For fun I’ve started by uploading a lot of rough stuff, mostly nudes and sketches done in museums. Plus a few hundred saints I drew twenty five years ago for a projected “Lives of The Saints” which never saw the light of day. Halfway through the editor bought a mailing list of devout Christians from Readers Digest and decided our light-hearted approach to the history of the Church might offend, so most of my drawings have been gathering dust in a cupboard. They’re all based on authentic sources which I’ll try and detail when I’ve worked out how to combine text with thumbnails.
