Ok...let's see...I've been on my back and in and out of the hospital for about 18 months so you really think I've gotten anything DONE!!! in that period...honestly Ret the chemo wipes you out to the point that there is absolutely nothing left.
I do have some Dolcett's that have never seen the light of day...and if I dig in my archive (can I find my archive?...it was here last time I looked...)I'm sure I can find things...
I spent hours looking through all of this wonderful material trying to wake myself into realizing exactly what it was
that was sitting in front of me.
The art was amazing. All done in pencil on vellum as well as pastels and oils.
I am a bit hesitant to admit that I am not really a big fan of sketches and drawings.
I prefer to see and collect photos of women being hanged or strangled.
Mainly in hopes of adding new original material to my web site, if not for my own personal enjoyment.
On my site I try not to published simple posed photos of models, or material posted on other web sites
where the model was paid. Fake asphyxia, parachute hangings and feet kicking images and videos are not my thing.
Now that I had the original works in my safes I decided to look around the Internet to see how much of the
material was still in circulation.
As I expected, the old Dolcett sites were there as well as a dozen more.
To my dismay, I found that of the thousands of web sites dedicated to Dolcett and the others,
that very few had images posted that were even slightly close to the originals.
Many of them were nice where the drawings had been colorized and dim areas had been touched up.
The artists, primarily Dolcett were not having their original masterpieces presented properly.
