Large (48 ins x 48 ins ) woodcut (unfinished). This was taken from a drawing I did of a man who, due to circumstances, regularly attends a free breakfast club run by volunteers. It is from a series of drawings I did of several people who use the same facility. They all have some issues, whether it is being unemployed, having a drink and/or drug related problem, or have been the victim of domestic abuse.

Each one kindly allowed me to draw them at breakfast or, at the evening soup kitchen which they also regularly go to. I intend to complete at least three large scale woodcuts where the woodcut itself is the artwork not any print taken from it.
