Karl Marx


Recommended Posts

Hello All,


It's been a while. I have recently started pencil drawing again after a 16 year 'break',

it's taking a bit of time to get back into it, but I thought I would show you my latest attempt -

while not exactly military related, it has it's connections.


Karl Marx -


Hope you like it, I feel it did not come out too bad.


Regards - Danny

That's a beautifully executed drawing.  Congratulations.  This kind of talent needs to be pursued.


It's a pity, though, that the subject of the drawing happens to be the most misguided, most inept economic theorist of the 19th century.  On the other hand, Marx did, in fact, serve as a great inspiration to Hagrid from "Harry Potter."

Mind you if some miscreant hadn't stolen his coat while he was in the British Museum the history of the 20th century might have been different, one only has to spend some time reading Das Kapital to realise how heavily it scarred him mentally.

Great drawing!  Thanks for sharing.  


My only comment on Karl Marx is that I loved the scene in 'SS-GB' where the German and Soviet delegations at his tomb meet the bomb set by the British Resistance.  One of my favourite bits in one of my favourite alternate history books. ;)

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
