Last weekend was my friend Drew’s birthday and he asked me to make him another one of my icons, this time Quentin Crisp.
This is to go with the Oscar Wilde icon that I made him a few years ago. He tells me my style has changed – and he’s right, the face is a bit more delicate, less shadowy. Quentin is very pale and lilac-y. Perhaps I should do it again.
Drew wanted one because I’d already made a pair for my friend Helen, Derek Jarmin and Joe Strummer:
Helen wanted hers because she had traveled to Greece and she’d seen the Nick Cave icon I’d made for my friends Steve and Nat’s wedding:
I am conscious that I don’t have any female icons, only male. Maybe I should make some for myself! I am also conscious that I haven’t been posting comics for a while. For some reason these school holidays have been all-consuming. I am also hard at work at the images for my novel. But I hope to make some more soon – I miss drawing comics.
