I decided to get this thing up and running today without waiting for my scanner to be installed again (I lost the discs to do it). So for now it's old art work, new ideas and quotes that take my fancy. The new stuff will just have to wait.
I've just finished reading Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and I'm currently reading different reviews on its meanings and trying to decipher my own views of it. But I keep getting side tracked, I found myself thinking about about Caligula, which made me think of the story of him walking through the castle in the night demanding the sun to rise. This gave birth to the thought of Richard E Grant's overtly dramatic Withnail portrayal in the character of Caligula, you know, "I demand to have some sunlight." Iim going to draw it as soon as chance allows.
Funily enough there's a Shakespeare quote at the end of that film so maybe I'm not as crazy as I sometimes think.
Actual art work will appear soon, probably old stuff until some genuis can find me an installer for a hp psc 1517 on the internet. We do but live in hope.
"Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
Like a Colossus; and we petty men
Walk under his huge legs, and peep about
To find ourselves dishonourable graves.
Men at some time are masters of their fates:
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings. "
