Apart from the fact it had a feel of an eyepiece image about it I just really liked it. I also said it was one of the best I had seen, not having seen every scetch on site. I was once very talented in the art department but threw it all away when an Uncle arranged a place for me at art school when I felt a place should have be given on merit, like anyone else would have.
