Savage Pencil aka Edwin Pouncey.

I've followed the work of Savage Pencil since the early 80s, and finally arranged a sitting in Dec 2011 after having sketched him a couple of times at live appearances prior to taht.

He is surrounded in this painting by various characters from his comix and record covers.
The duck on his left shoulder featured on the back of the 7" single "March Of The Sinister Ducks" I was lucky enough to purchase the original artwork for this at Sav's "Psychedelic Sewage" show at London's Horse Hospital gallery in 2001.

In his hands he holds a copy of his illustrated poetry book "Reichstag Bleep Hour"
