No Moore.
OK, bad joke, but every line of the above scribble was delivered with a fondness associated with those whose memory make up the fibre of one's past. Can't imagine someone of his English eccentricities being allowed a break in front of the BBC's cameras today. Heard a magnificent poem on the radio this evening  by the great Murray Lachlan Young, eulogising Patrick Moore. Very funny. If I discover a link to it then I'll post it here...

Kenneth Kendall

Gone today. Remember him well for his news-reading back in my youth.

Strange folk abroad in the misty swamps...
Patterns in photoshop are great to add time saving details and effects. I pulled this old drawing from the virtual sketchpad to try some pattern making in the shirt, face, hat and neckerchief. Also added a bit of shadow to help create some volume...good fun.
