The brief was to provide two of the most startling gargoyles I could. This was not quite as easy as I first thought. My vocabulary of face shapes is based on people I see around me and that I draw whilst sipping a coffee in a cafe or waiting for the doctor. There is not much gargoyle material in there. I doodled and researched and got the most inspiration from a copy of a costly version of ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
