Appointment in Samarra.
From 1001 Nights. A story much used by other writers and poets. It is uncommon in that the figure of Death is depicted as a woman. It's a story about fate. As ever, I have doubts about this, chiefly down to the figure of Death...I didn't want to show the usual skull-like personification, but it's difficult to come up with something new. This is in my new A3 sketch-book, which I intend to use for more fully worked sketches of a fantasy nature. I doubt I'll get the story in this description area, so I'm putting it in the comments.
About the Artist
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.View full profile
