Thank you, Stephen,
I always believed that the change in the "Jeykle and Hyde" story was more from within rather than physical....indeed there are certain addictive chemicals that can change mans behaviour for the worst, and it's usually only the eyes that show any real signs of the madness of substance abuse!

Hi Karen
Thank you so much for these lovely comments! Cathie will be so over the moon when I tell her that you have been in touch! heh heh so c'mon don't be a stranger!

Hi Jamie,

Well I can see that you have not lost your touch, from the old Thor comic books to what you are producing now. I see there is also a darker side to the wee lad I used to know. But your ability was always there. You have a natural gift for presentation keep up the good work.

You know who..!!!!

Ja, Danke, Rita! I like the effects you can get with heavy shadow work!

Wow James, what an evil grin - or is it just scary? A lot of emotions just in one painting. Great done - as always James!

Thank you dear Guest! mmmm well I guess I've always been interested in art from a child onwards, but I stopped drawing for quite a few years from the age of 16, after a lifetime of neglect I got back into it again a few years ago! still I do believe that regret is a useless emotion so I like to see myself as a reborn scribbler! LOL! learning and hopefully improving my artwork all over again is a real blast! thank you for your comment and most refreshing question
