I cannot wait for this to show up in our mailbox. I love your art, particularly when your words and drawings complement each other. We've just moved and are living in our first apartment. Your book will serve as a celebration.

I actually got a pass in Oxford and Cambridge O-level Art. One of my rare academic triumphs. That was in 1951; safe to say that whatever skills I had then have been frittered away in other less demanding fields of endeavour.

In those days we were still sufferiung from shortages atrributable to WW2. Notably when tuition turned to scraper-board. The art master, a refugee from Nazi Germany, encouraged us to consider snow scenes since they economised on the area of board that needed scraping. I'm assuming you never faced that privation.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
