I made the first drawings in 1987 in response to being warned by a flatmate that I shouldn't walk at home alone at night. It was made out of concern for me as I often arrived home very late after a folk club session. This wild one's walk was my response. Of course, the figure's walk is about freedom and having the freedom to walk alone and at night. I reworked this image into various drawings and paintings as well. Some paintings will be added here one day.

In 2008 incorporated this image to go with a section of Sen's poem New Vessels for an artist book and two exhibitions.
