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.

Other stuff

No Eggmen this week (yet - the week's not quite over so I might still get one up). The school holiday is on so it's a bit hard to concentrate. What I have been able to do though is sit at my table and obsessively put thousands of tiny ink dots on paper in the shapes of people.
Here's Melanie Klein.
And Erik Satie.
