Ah! The glory of a summer day at the park!
A pleasure so simple and so rare. Friends, flowers and Edith.
I discovered the pre-raphaelites, like many other things, at my local library. I was only ever allowed to go there in my freetime. It was home or the library… I loved the walk to the library and then the hours spent with books. I remember looking outside at all the people in the sun, on their way to the lake, and here I was, reading Emily Dickinson and learning about the history of glam rock…
I do miss those endless afternoons at the library… When I picked up a book of Rossetti’s work; a man who has a model of woman that is so very much like mine… I was conquered.
This simple fine liner drawing aims to replicate the air of a Rossetti’s woman. The scene is somehow medieval with the addition of the Latin phrase qualis artifex pereo (=what artist dies with me) attributed to Nero right before his death. Nice one!
This depicts a young woman (could it be me… err… of course it is!) looking fierce and ready to take on a challenge. And yes, back in 2005, I was wearing a skull as an earring and I gave the other one to a cute young man.
Big club, big crowd… the appeal of electronic music
This was taken during one of those endless wait before the stage.
Enjoying the single drink token given to the artist.
It’s all about contrasts… Lil Henrietta on my big faux fur coat circa 2008

Somehow this started off pretty cartooney… the original thought was a full tale of being lost in the woods…
