The detail in your paintings always amazes me Lew. Sometimes I worry about the contents of your head 😊 Have you ever been /are a professional illustrator?.

You're so very good at these Lewis :)

Thanks for your comments Sylvia and Louise. No Sylvia, I would have loved to have been an illustrator (of books, by preference), but there was no such thing as a careers advisory service when I left school. My exam results meant I'd won a place at a local art college, but I didn't take it up because I thought artists starved in garrets...and I wanted a job so I could buy a pair of drainpipe trousers. Bizarre, isn't it?

Your imagination is boundless Lewis, with talent to match it. (-:

Yes you are brilliant at your drawing Lewis always a treat to view.

Made me laugh Lewis. Superb. The black really pushes those characters out.

This really is imagination running wild Lewis, I love you comment about art college, I too won an art scholarship, and left after six months I went into window display work, which I loved, carry on with your great drawings and imagination, it's great 😀

Beautifully done Lewis ,

Great drawing Lewis, full of imagination, and strong contrast

Thanks for your comments, everybody. It's extremely encouraging.

I wouldn't like to meet these in the dark Lewis! Superb detail as always.

Wonderful drawing and brilliant imagination Lewis.

You are brilliant should write your own book with illustrations!

You have superlative skill Lewis, your work is always interesting and so detailed which I love, brilliant.

About the Artist
Lewis Cooper

Self taught. Love drawing. Like to make pictures up, without using reference pics, often in cartoon style. I do other pictures where I do use reference. I'm knocking on a bit, born in 1940 in Greenwich, London. Retired, and loving it.
