More Gormenghast

The Ladies Clarice and Cora.

It's very hard to come up with your own images for characters after you've seen someone else's version. Frodo used to look like a Rankin and Bass drawing. Now he looks like Elijah Wood. I started drawing the Gormenghast sketches in order to drive the images from the BBC television production out of me head. They were interferring with my enjoyment of the book. But, I loved the depiction of Clarice and Cora, and, will continue to hear the actor's voices in my head when I read chapters in which the twins appear.
