Behold ! The great and terrible Catmonkey, who I first found on Scarborough beach. This little chap had such personality, I'd always wanted to do a large portrait of him and Tales in Sombre Tones provided the perfect excuse. To give you an idea of the difference in scale, that's him perched in the bottom right hand corner of his framed picture (catmonkey not included).
He comes complete with a copy of the story by Sean Walter.
Worked in charcoal and Wolff's carbon pencils on Fabriano Artistico extra white paper. It's framed ready to ship in a smart black frame made using recycled materials and with acrylic safety glazing. Drawn area size 12" wide by 18" high, frame size 16" x 22".
Additional images show the work in progress.
