"I used to do a regular drawing for the Times London and this is one of them from the late eighties I believe. I have no publishing reference for this image as I recycle all my papers, so I will have to refer to the image only. This was an early style of drawing for me in pen and ink, at the time I was influenced by Russian art from the early twentieth century and the Bauhaus. I wanted to break up the image somewhat with areas of light and dark and developed this comb effect coming in from different angles. Also at this time I started to make my drawings in odd shapes to break from the use of square and rectangle shapes!"
