New work (and prints)

Hemming's Rents, a small lane. Drawn in black pen and quink. There were few paved streets at this time in London:

" other parts of the city each house and shop-owner cared for the patch outside the door; fops in red heels would stumble and sway between gleaming slabs and dusty ruts, stepping delicately past the piles of rubbish, ashes and oyster shells."
(Jenny Uglow, 'Hogarth: A Life and a World', page 297)

Some prints from the mono-printing workshop, above. (And these were the better ones!) Below are a couple of other things from my sketchbook. I'm still trying to work out the best materials to use for this (this is a mixture of black pen and quink) :

This was from a workshop we did a week or so ago. The piece is unfinished, but it is based on one of Sigmund Freud's cases, the Wolfman. It was great fun to illustrate - we each had to illustrate a part of the case.

The original drawing (unfinished and hastily done I know):

This was unintentional, but when folded round on itself, the picture told a different story - ...Freud's legs matched his client's body:
