A clutch of Dugdales

Dugdale x 8

Eight Dugdales (collage and mixed media 2015 30cms x30cms)

Poor old William Dugdale (1605-1686), he’s done nothing to deserve the gentle mockery to which I subject him. I suppose it’s his solemn, Puritan facial expression that makes me do it. ‘It’ being replacing his sensible black Puritan hat for a series of anachronistic bonnets, titfers and head-dresses. I once drew an entire Tower of Babel on one Dugdale, another time it was a model pirate ship. These, by comparison, are relatively modest.

By the way, the Santa’s Little Helper was inspired by (i.e. stolen from) the great Richard Thompson. The Art of Richard Thompson is an essential purchase.
