Remarks
"Many thanks to handsome Moyo who modelled again yesterday for the Naked Drawing Group, and whose unfinished tattoo inspired me to do some ink of my own. I don’t often use ink for drawing, it always feels so permanent and doesn’t allow a second thought or a reappraisal in the way that conté does, but it’s an interesting intellectual exercise sometimes. Moyo will be at the tattooist this week to have more done on the thigh area, so this is a tiny window of time caught here"
