Major Project: Frank Bernard Dicksee

Just stumbled upon this chap while hunting suitable images for the Dorian and Sybil scenes.

"Sir Frank Bernard Dicksee KCVO (b. London, 27 November 1853 – 17 October 1928) was an English Victorian painter and illustrator, best known for his pictures of dramatic historical and legendary scenes. He also was a noted painter of portraits of fashionable women, which helped to bring him success in his own time."

I'll be using his images amongst others to construct the theatre posters as he painted a couple Romeo and Juliet images.

Alright mr Beg! just thought i would pop by.
ive just been shoving my face all over your blog, final major project time ay. Im loving all of it. great move having it all black and white, its looking delicious. i would eat it if i could, might be slightly chewy though, i imagine it would taste like blackjacks, i bloody love blackjacks.
you must have a lot of pressure on at the moment, if you didn't then you wouldn't feel the absolute euphoria on hand in so its well worth it. keep it up mate, its looking fantastic.

PS. Go easy on the coffee, red bull and red rooster, trust me. its a strange feeling when you can see your piss lighting up the bathroom at night. its not a spiritual experience. God knows what they put in them drinks.
