This bearded wizard is my father Jan Dugour. Or rather, was. He died a long time ago, but he often comes visiting in my head. An accomplished analog visual artist when he was alive, I believe he would have loved to do some (or a lot of) digital art.
Theo German (?) from Foto Abstede asked my father to pose for him, styled as a Good Wizard, the main inspiration being Gandalf. An Evil Sorcerer version also exists. Maybe I’ll post that later.
The original and only print (that I know of) was bleached by time, and damaged by moisture. Stijn Windig was so good to get it scanned at high res, so I could then take a couple of years to get around to fixing the damage digitally.
