100 years ago

afgerond, etching

In 1918 my great grand father, Henry Edward Millward, was posted in northern France during the first world war. Recently I have discovered that he had a talent for pen and ink drawings. In having found his sketch book, not only were a number of finished drawings discovered but also numerous pencil sketches. These sketches seem to have been made with the aim of finishing them at a later date. However these sketches were not finished. In honour of the 100 year anniversary of the end first world war and of the work of Henry Edward Millward I am finishing his sketches and am experimenting with translating the images to graphic printed images.
