The faces and poses of your characters are beautifully emotive. I love the way you've used gold leaf to enhance that expression.

I love how you've embraced the gold leafing as your signature, unique style.  It really gives the drawings a classical feel and adds incredible contrast to the graphite.  The effect makes parts of your works look like they've been set ablaze.  I also give my respect because I know how delicate leafing is, and how frustrating it is to work with, but you have great control.  It pays off because it's breathtaking, all the best!
