    Wow!! I love all your artwork!

  • lindatoigo

    Your style reminds me of a great French illustrator, Jacques Tardi:

    Well done!

      Wow, thank you so much for your generous compliment, for sending me that video, and for introducing me to Jacques Tardi. I’m very impressed by Tardi’s skills — I could never draw in front of a camera, let alone smoke a cigarette at the same time (not that I smoke, but I’m just not good at multitasking like that). Definitely going to check out Tardi’s work. 🙂 Also, always lovely to meet a fellow Edward Gorey fan. I look forward to following your blog and your amazing illustrations. Best regards, G. E.

    Ecky thump, looks good. Today we’re celebrating the 450th anniversary for Mr. Shakespeare. He wrote the Harry Potter series. ALSO, in mid-May one is hop-skipping-and-jumping down to London to see 1984 at the Playhouse Theatre. As a big Orwell fan, I may well cry so hysterically during the performance I’ll be booted out.

    Hope all’s well, yo!

      Thanks, Mr. Wapojif! 🙂 I forgot about Shakespeare’s anniversary, but I guess I unintentionally celebrated it the other day through watching Only Lovers Left Alive that claims the vampire Christopher Marlowe was the real genius behind Shakespeare and, boy, does he have some choice words on the subject. Wow, 1984 on stage sounds amazing! I however am dying to get tickets to Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway! Best, G. E.
