Vincent Hesse & Douglas Laws by Jolante Hesse

Vincent Hesse & Douglas Laws

My father (with the monocle) and his broadcasting partner. They hosted a few radio shows together in the time before TV arrived in South Africa.
From a tiny press photo taken sometime in the 60's.

This drawing is just delightful! With that smug expression on his face, makes me wonder what Mr. Cigar just said that gets up the nose of Mr Monacle.

Hi Miro, I know the feeling. These two were always acting up, playing different characters and generally behaving badly! Great fun... Thanks for the comment!

Yes Vicky, it does mean something special - my dad died in 1975 - but he was really larger than life in many ways. Thanks so much!

Artist Statement
for Jolante Hesse
Jolante HesseSome years ago I survived a serious attack on my life; and during the year of physical (and emotional) recovery I did two drawings - and loved the activity.
I mustered the courage to enroll in art classes 4 years ago. It is what I always wanted to do. I've been painting for about a three years now. It is both agonising and wonderful.
