Senex Redux: the evolution of Senex
Welcome to a page where I give you a glimpse of how Senex is evolving. In 2008 (or it might have
been earlier - can't remember), at the end of my Snake book, I wanted someone to go to an Aesciplion. So senex emerged as this stricken
character. Well, you can see the next evolution in the pages from the existing Senex work, in other places on this website.
In 2011, when I first dummied up this website, people started to press me to do something with Senex. The final battering
was my mother's enthusiasm and encouragement expressed earlier last month (i.e. in June 2012), and so a new Senex - Senex Redux -
has started to take shape. Apart from making more of an effort with the draughtmanship, I'm also leaving framed spaces for superimposing
text, rather than inserting my hand-drawn scrawl. Once the paintings are flat-bed scanned, we'll see how the text goes.
But that's another issue, and why these are simply glimpses...
