Throughout his time in the military he continued to work on his art, steadfastly sticking to his first and preferred medium of pencil. Now he says he mixes it up a bit using colour pencil and charcoal too, sometimes all in one work. “I don’t know why I like it. It’s the fineness of it, the detail of it.
