New work from John Blanche #4

This is the final image from the latest batch which John has kindly sent through. Its composition is less radical than the pair I posted previously and it uses the pen, ink and stippling which characterised his work until the late 80s.

Note the surround, with the annotation and page number. John has taken to working on separate sheets and then pasting the finished images in huge, leather bound tomes. With these grimoires he carries on the medieval tradition of the apocalyptic scribe whose vision has been seared by the vistas only he has witnessed.
