Finally, some Eggmen


More portraits

Dmitri Shostakovich again.

Sahelanthropus tchadensis was, apparently, an early human ancestor ca 6-7 million years ago. Its bones were dug up in Chad, as the name would suggest.
I think I'm getting the hang of this scraperboard/scratchboard thing.

And my Great Auntie Nora. Nora died before I was born so she's not around to complain that I did a bit of a crap portrait of her. In the photo I had, she looks all gorgeous and doe-eyed and willowy in a kind of turn-of-the-last-century way. Sadly, I think I've rendered her looking a bit like a doe-eyed and willowy Greek transvestite.
