All around me are familiar faces

About two months ago, tidying up my old folders I found a lot of forgotten drawings, many of which I've now posted here.
My last archaeological loot (and now I'll must upload just new drawigs) is a series of portraits. These are two of them made in 1985 ca., you can see the rest here.

I had a big surprise seeing again the crosshatching in Duke's collar because it reminded me -far in the distance- the technique of my admired France.
It was made with a rapidograph (our beloved Pigma Micron type fibre pen didn't exist then). For this kind of work, the only choice was this or the dip pen.

This is one of the few drawings of which I don't conserve the original. I made a good photocopy for me, and gave the original to a friend of mine, great fan of Buñuel as me.

Snakes in the ocean, eels in the sea...

I've been wandering early and (mainly) late
(but not) from New York City to the Golden Gate (maybe one of these days).
And (luckily) it don't look like I'll ever stop my wandering.

EDM#18 The view from two windows

I drew this last weekend looking out of the window of R&C's House in Naples. The churh on the center is Santa Teresa degli Scalzi. On the background Sant'Elmo's Castle and the Charterhouse of San Martino. I took also some photos that you can see here.

I've found this a week ago lost in some folder. I made it in august 2003 sitting in the balcony of our house in Zola Predosa, where we lived since our arrival in Italy (july 2001) to august 2005 when we moved to our current house. I didn't know I was making EDM#18 "Draw the view from a window".

Give me a healthy mind, Lord

I believe in the religion of this prayer.
I did this as a gift for my friends R&C in 1993.
The photo came out really bad but the text is still readable and that's all that matters.
