Saint George and the Dragon

Celts and Romans

The Age of Conan

(1969)

This was the follow up painting from "The World of Odysseus", but on the same frieze design. By this time, I have discovered the amazing writing of Robert E Howard so my interests have shifted away from the classics to the fantasy.

1969 is also the year when I left college and started my career as an Illustrator.

THE WORLD OF ODYSSEUS

(1966)

"This was done at home after reading 'The Odyssey' by Homer, in the style of the frieze. It was my first use of oil colours, later to be abandoned when I started my professional work."

1966 was my first year at Hornsey College of Art.

Roman Galion

(1963)

"This is one of those drawings that I used to do back when I was a kid influenced by films and comics. Its drowned on cheep wallpaper and quite large. I had it pinned on my wall with many others. It was falling apart when this photo was taken and now almost disintegrated."

A very old drawing.

The Viking Raid
