"You left out my tattoo"

The beautiful Sophia in charcoal on a chalk ground. When she saw the picture she said "You left out my tattoo". It was just a small one on her right hip.

Strip: a work in progress

Strip will be shot in Britain this autumn by US director Osaretin Oghomwen.
Currently  there is a fund raising campaign at Indiegogo.

Or you can donate via Osaretin's tumblr

Lay your sleeping head, my love....

Chalk, charcoal and pastels on black paper, and as I drew the lines of W. H. Auden played through my mind:
Lay your sleeping head, my love, 
Human on my faithless arm;
Time and fevers burn away
Individual beauty from
Thoughtful children, and the grave
Proves the child ephermeral:
But in my arms till break of day
Let the living creature lie,
Mortal, guilty, but to me
The entirely beautiful.
