Sweeney Todd - 'The String of Pearls'













“Some mysterious fiddlestick!”

www.sweeneypies.com


A little insight into my current project... an adaptation of the Fleet Street publisher Edward Lloyd's 1846/47 Penny Dreadful serial (Sweeney Todd) 'The String of Pearls: A Romance' into graphic format (a kind of anthropomorphic visual melodrama... and terribly murderous!)

It's my tribute to London, the place of my birth and a constant source of inspiration, as well as the chance to indulge in specific interests; vintage ephemera and details of the gritty reality of 18th century life.

You can check out all the various concept artwork for the project in the following gallery: leopreston.deviantart.com/gall…

I don't often get the chance to express my full appreciation for the wonderful pieces of gift art fellow artists send me. With this in mind, I thought I'd feature some of those that I both applaud and treasure right here!

Since I’ve really neglected my own account for a shocking number of years now, I’d like to pose the question. I’m honestly wondering just how much of the community I once knew is still alive and well here.

I myself have not given up on this place. I just need the time to ‘clear out and update.’ I think I’m too fond of DA to say goodbye for good.

So yes, anyone still out there?

The Implied Illusion:

A perfectly sane and well adjusted individual.

The Perceived Reality:

An eccentric English type with a hopeless Bohemian sense of fashion, jazzy designer by day, frenetic illustrator by night, working on a murderous graphic novel of sorts, singularly contemplative, an example of organized chaos, an incurable prankster with a quirky sense of humour, a collector of all things odd and truly fascinating, supporter of the highest order of post-it note misuse, deeply philosophical, erudite in several 'ological' studies of interest, a pensive observer of seasonal changes, an addicted tea sipper, of wide ranging musical tastes, a feverish consumer of classic and modern literature, film enthusiast, semi-realistic visual contortionist, convicted sketcher and long-suffering, versatile creative... sadly lacking a pair of fetching pantaloons.

Favourite Quotes:

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." - Oscar Wilde

"My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work!" - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes)

"I cannot rest, I must draw, however poor the result... I will do something sooner or later." - Beatrix Potter

"All the world is competent to judge my pictures except those who are of my profession." - William Hogarth
