…Dragons do appear in my sketchbook on a regular basis…. my Norse forebears used to draw them on things and carve them on the front of the sea going R.V.s…. I’ve been fascinated with ancient Nordic art since I was told about my heritage as a child…prefer it to Celtic stuff…less symmetrical…Scan 45

… my life long fascination with Smaug is also a contributing factor… (nothing to do with Mr. Jacksons “Hobbit” thing at all, but keep up the good work Pete.)….

(makes incomprehensible hand gesture…)

(…and prayers for the sanity that can only be brought on by a reduction in atmospheric temperature….how the hell people function in hot counties is beyond my white working class ass!)
