Roman Gladiator

The TMTA theme this week is men. This means I can use my Roman statue stamp at last. He can be anyone I want him to be (which is useful) as CI didn't know who he was when they photographed him at the Colisseum.

In real life the colour used on the statue is much greener, but I actually prefer how it is here. The EP is very textured because I used it over Archival ink, and it obviously doesn't spread evenly, as the ink dries very quickly. Shame you cannot see that on the scan.

Back to school today, and yawnsville inset day meetings. Hopefully somebody might turn up with a violin tomorrow, but I doubt it. At least I can organise my timetable.
