Case Study

Draw what you know eh? Would you believe that I used a mirror to get that facial expression? You would? I was only around 23 at the time.

I lived in the countryside from 1977 - 1985 and saw many people like this fine chap up and down our road and out in the farmyards. My grandparents had a bicycle wheel in the window of the outside loo in Co.Armagh. And you'd often see fence repairs executed with old bed-steads.
