The Soul of Blake

Here is a new brush & ink drawing from a photo of the death mask of the artist/poet, William Blake, for my Heaven and Hell series. Blake has long been an inspiration of mine, & it seems fitting that he be included in some way in this series.

The Soul of Blake, 2011, brush & ink on paper, 16.5" x 14".

Original photo was by Joanna Kane, from a book entitled "The Somnambulists", apparently. The photo comes up very frequently if you do a Google image search.
