Pen and Ink Portraits of a Different Kind…

… and of a different era 🙂 Here are two illustrations that I did quite long ago (in 2003) and they belong to a genre called fantasy art. The one I loved best was that of a woman warrior. I had got it framed too, but some years ago, our office was robbed and the […]

Pet Portrait Commission: A Handsome Lhasa Apso.
