“Leadership is a hard life, my son.”

Thank you, Steven, for the title! :)   Under the watchful eyes of his father Hamilcar Barca, Hannibal is prepared for a life of leadership – and before he can lead, he must first learn to follow. This paves the way for Hannibal’s later success as the commander of an army composed of Iberians, Africans, […]

The Painting of the Sword

… or, how to avoid cluttering up mass scenes. On your second attempt. In this painting, I have such an amount of detail in the lineart that I have to be careful not to kill the picture with it.Let me give you a fun example of how *not* to do it, from exactly ten years [...]

The pretence of knowledge

This week, in between essay marking, I read on a friend’s facebook page: “In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.” I actually think this sentence is less paradox than it sounds.
