The Elusive Pimpernel by greyflea The Elusive Pimpernel by greyflea
This is a piece of artwork I've submitted to Le Gun magazine; the theme was 'Paris', though we could take that as loosely as we wanted, so I went with something a bit French and English. ;) Featured here is Marguerite Blakeney, Sir Percy Blakeney and an ominous Chauvelin in the middle (not a good place for him to stand, I think ;)) all of whom feature in Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Just a quick mention - I adore the Scarlet Pimpernel books (still not read them all though!) and I love the musical too. I need to watch that Richard E Grant version...

I have only read the first book sadly, though I adore the '82 film.

No I haven't! I saw the dvd for it the other day in HMV though. :) Hmmm, that's an idea; I bet it's gone by now though. :/

Did I ever mention how much I love your work? There's nothing else quite like it! I love the subject matter, and the drawing itself is very evocative. SO much sensuality in the two main figures, juxtaposed with the menace of the guillotine - brilliant! (can you tell I'm drunk...?)

Anyways, I love this :D

Yay, thankyou very much! :D Woah, you're drunk and used the word 'juxtaposed'?! I'm impressed! ;) I'd probably just about manage 'juuuhhh'.
