Interests
Yikes! It's nearly Yuletide again (halfway out of the darkness!) and mayhap thou hast the bone-ache - or so spaketh Catweazle, the 11th Century magician who was catapulted into the 1970s in the children's tv series of the same era. You can catch both series on a certain video-hosting website (or invest in the dvds!) The combination of the magical writing of the much-missed Richard Carpenter and the mercurial acting of Geoffrey Bayldon in the title role is quite wonderful and though very much of its time is still well worth watching today.

Recently painted a Vitruvian Cyberman (after Leonardo) it was a Tenth Planet version and only served to remind me how downright creepy those original designs were with their almost mummified, cloth faces (concealing who knows what underneath) and their "human" hands reminding us of their origins and "closeness" to ourselves; truly the stuff of nightmares!!

Also I've had the privilege of being granted an exhibition in The Whispering Gallery which resides within the excellent Kasterborous website - if you fancy a wander through their grandiose halls and corridors please follow this link:

As the winter weather kicks in good and proper it's time to smear on the goose-fat and stitch yourselves into those under-garments - it really saves on the heating bills and is so much more comfortable than stuffing newspaper under your clothes!
