I love comparison studies—whether one image inspires another, or the images develop along parallel lines. This version of St. George is by Walter Crane, from Book I of Spenser's Faerie Queene, published in the 1890s. This drawing predates the Harold Nelson drawing of the last post. Both images were undoubtedly inspired by many a painting of St. George prior to their times.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
