a fellow in Spain posts a sketch I drew for him in Madrid in 2001. With a little darkening of it in photoshop you can see it more clearly. Some artists have a foolproof convention sketch they dash off all the time, and I admit I do too. Then occasionally we go out on a limb and try something risky, and sometimes it works, as it does here.

I still think you should enter into the world of galleries. This is one of the finest pieces of modern art I've seen in years. Dave McKean is wishing he did this right now.

Eddie, I'm about to publish a tri-annual journal, The Gnostic, concerned with Gnosticism and western esotericism. It will include a 12,000 word interview with Alan and a lengthy excerpt from Angel Passage, the first to be published in print. Would it be possible to include your sketch of Alan in this issue? You can contact me at andrew (aat) bardic-press.com .

Thanks,

Andrew
