This piece would have made a nice first post for this blog, but the Heston thing was so fresh in my mind, I felt it was somehow more urgent.

Long Lost Lon
London After Midnight mat never be found, but I recently discovered this image on an old ZIP disk. I think it was meant to be the home page image for my very first website, long since retired. It represents some early experimentation with Photoshop, or some lesser photo editing software. The sketch of Chaney is pencil, while the background is a photo, slightly blurred to create the illusion of depth. The drawing was one of the very first "full body" Sketchy Things pieces, from The Things Remain Sketchy (2000).
