    Love the Birkenstocks and socks. Did you know, a mans’ character can always be assessed through his foot wear.

  2. Dianne says :

    Great to see your excellent drawings, Ian. The more the better. I’m now a subscriber!
    What is the “daily dozen”?

    Hope you’re well…thanks to Sue for the link.

    Hello Ian,
    Now I’ve found you here! I think You drew yourself looking too old.
    (You don’t look that old.) Very characteristic with your birkenstocks!
    How could I even imagine you have a blog?
    May I visit with you from time to time?
    I knew you were so talented in drawing art, let alone in music but
    I have to say this: you are an amazing person to me!

    Hello Ian! I just looked at the drawings and I love the realistic facial expressions. I will drop by from time to time to look at your drawings. They are very wonderful 🙂

    Hi Ian

    I just phoned to say ‘congrats’ on the Honourary Doctorate (richly deserved and I’m delighted) and you dropped ‘hungdrawnandcultured’ in my ear with about as much urgency as the proverbial snail in a hurry! Your blog (in pictures) is a delight…too! Love your convocation sketch! Will attach ‘hungdrawnandcultured’ to my favourites; after all, aren’t we all dying to be drawn,hung, and cultured!!? May the ink never run dry.

    I found your site while searching for an image of rats leaving a sinking ship. I was searching for images that were not copyright.

    I don’t see any mention of copyright on your site. What’s your policy on other people re-using your great graphics?

    Hello Ian,

    Some great material you’ve got here. Would love to see your take on the impending retirement of the Sea King Helicopter fleet, or even the foibles of the Navy and Airforce
