  2. I love photo-realism and your work has to be some of the best I've been fortunate enough to see. I dub thee 'Richard Estes of pencil'. Quite different subject matter of course, but I hope you appreciate the comparison somewhat anyway. Keep it up!

  20. Saw your story on the BBC News website, and am simply blown away by the artistic gift you have been given. The depth, dimension and realism even manages to communicate itself via TV/Internet: I can only begin to imagine what they are like in the 'flesh'.

    Wishing you every good success in what will undoubtedly be a stirling artistic career.

  25. I am in awe! Your work is breathtaking, your story inspirational! I've just read about you on a newspaper site in South Africa [IOL] and am blown away. Shared the article on twitter and facebook, so my friends can read about your work too. As someone who loves are and photography, but hasn't a gram of your talent, I salute you :)

    Will follow you with interest.
