Pencil drawings - 

Illustrated in the style of a vintage Edwardian or Victorian photograph. This is my 'Anicurio' collection. Each original illustration is carefully hand drawn in pencil. Once finished, I hand age and treat them with various dye methods, to resemble an old dusty antique photograph. I want this series to suggest something that was rediscovered by you. An inherited artifact from a mysterious benefactor?  Or perhaps revealed in a long abandoned attic, lying at the bottom of a chest. Buried beneath old dusty clothes and fading hand written notes. 

Regarding this series,  I'm fascinated with the old, stained and aged Victorian and Edwardian photos I see. I look at old reference photos, imagine what sort of animals they would be. Then compose a hybrid of the references. I often change poses and back grounds. But I try not to alter the features of the animals expression. But often, the animal seems to give it a greater sense of humanity than the actual person posing. I sometimes finish the piece with a selection of aging techniques. Everything from tea, coffee, soy sauce, lemon juice and a heat gun
